An infant born prematurely with a double-outlet right ventricle became the youngest ever patient to undergo a ventricular switch procedure. In this rare case, the ventricular septal defect was remote, preventing a standard repair. The operation was successful, and the patient was discharged from the hospital at sixteen months old.
