We describe an unusual case of congenitally corrected transposition in which left-sided obstructions included a supravalvar tricuspid ring, a parachute deformity of the valve itself, and coarctation of the aorta. Surgical correction was performed in 3 stages. Initially we repaired the coarctation and banded the pulmonary trunk. Then we removed the band and, finally, attempted unsuccessfully to replace the tricuspid valve. When coarctation of the aorta occurs in congenitally corrected transposition, it is always wise to search carefully for abnormalities of the tricuspid valve.
