TOF, DORV, truncus arteriosus) carries a higher risk of recurrent respiratory tract infections and increased frequency of hospitalizations (2).
Another patient was a 1.4-year-old girl with DORV, had a surgical repair performed 1.17 years before the current balloon angioplasty.
DORV with complex anatomy should be considered among the probable differential diagnoses for infants presenting with generalised cyanosis since birth.

CoA, a common congenital heart disease (CHD) in clinical practice, accounts for 6-8% of CHD.[1] It may occur alone or in combination with other cardiac and vascular anomalies, such as atrial septal defect (ASD), ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), bicuspid aortic valve, double outlet right ventricle (DORV), transposition of the great arteries (TGA), and other cardiac malformations.[2],[3] CoA combined with aortic arch hypoplasia (AAH) is a serious cardiac abnormality that should be treated at an early stage to improve the long-term survival of patients.
Out of 307 operated patients, 4 (1.3%) patients had previous modified Blalock Taussig shunts, 2 (0.6%) associated ASD with TOF, 3 (0.9%) co-association of TOF with PDA, 2 (0.6%) had large conal arterial branch crossing the annulus, 3 (0.9%) had dextrocardia with situs inversus, 12 (3.9%) TOF with double outlet right ventricle (DORV), 2 (0.6%) were associated with complete AV canal defect, 8 (2.60%) with absent pulmonary valve syndrome, 15 (5.5%) with left pulmonary artery stenosis.
CHD group included neonates with diagnosed Persistent Truncus Arteriosus, PTA (n = 13, 30.1%), Tetralogy of Fallot, TOF (n = 11,25.6%), Interrupted Aortic Arch, IAA (n = 6,13.9%), and Double Outlet Right Ventricle, DORV (n = 5,11.6%).
To the Editor: We report a successful treatment of a case diagnosed with double outlet right ventricle (DORV) with absent pulmonary valve (APV) and bronchiarctia.
Indications included pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (VSD) in 11 patients, Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) with absent pulmonary valve syndrome (APVS) in 2 patients, double outlet right ventricle (DORV), transposition of great arteries (TGA) and pulmonary stenosis in 1 patient each, an infected pseudo-aneurysm in 1 patient and aortic valve disease needing a Ross procedure in 1 patient.
In addition to ASD, pathology of our patient included left atrial isomerism, DORV (double outlet right ventricle) hypoplastic left ventricle, pulmonary stenosis and double vena cava superior, as well (Patient no:58 in Table 3).
Background: Double outlet right ventricle (DORV) is a group of complex congenital heart abnormalities.
