Anomalous origin of a branch pulmonary artery (PA) from the ascending aorta is rather rare within the spectrum of congenital cardiovascular anomalies. In the scarce subset of patients with anomalous origin of right PA (RPA) from the ascending aorta originating from the lateral aspect of the distal ascending aorta, early neonatal repair by employing native aortic tissue for RPA reconstruction combined with translocation of the aorta posteriorly to the RPA can be an alternative option in the surgical armamentarium.
