We report here-in a 30 days-old male child diagnosed with D-transposition of the great arteries of the ventricular septal defect, Yacoub’s type A coronary arterial pattern undergoing anatomical correction at the arterial level with Dacron patch closure of the ventricular septal defect under moderately hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass and St. Thomas (II) based cold blood cardioplegia.
