We present a newborn with heterotaxy features, multiple congenital anomalies, truncus arteriosus with long segment tracheal stenosis, and a left pulmonary artery sling. The patient had complete neonatal repair with slide tracheoplasty and repair of the left pulmonary artery sling with anterior translocation of the pulmonary artery. The truncus was repaired with a transventricular ventricular septal defect closure with a patch and right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit. Complete repair of complex cardiac neonatal lesions with critical tracheal stenosis is feasible and should be the strategy of choice in these complex patients.
