A 2.6 kg female with the diagnosis of type "B" interruption of the "right" aortic arch and mitral atresia underwent stage I palliation with translocation and anastomosis of the distal right carotid artery to the descending aorta. The distal main pulmonary artery was anastomosed to the under surface of the neoaortic arch. A modified Blalock-Taussig shunt was constructed between the left side innominate artery and the left pulmonary artery. The child awaits stage II palliation.
