A three-year-old boy with Ebstein's anomaly, who had received Starnes operation in the neonate state, successfully underwent staged total cavopulmonary connection. Despite of hypoplasticity of the pulmonary artery, the postoperative cardiac catheterization showed no elevation of pulmonary artery pressure and good cardiac performance. Although he suffered from supraventricular tachycardia in the early postoperative period, subsequent course was uneventful.
