Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries accounts for less than 1% of congenital heart diseases, and is defined as ventriculoarterial and atrioventricular discordance. We report a case of a 56-year-old woman complaining of persistent cough, who was diagnosed with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries and dextrocardia. Moderate regurgitation of the systemic tricuspid valve was revealed. The surgeon was positioned on the left side of the patient, and performed tricuspid valve replacement through the left atrium. Furthermore, mitral valve annuloplasty, atrial septal defect closure, and myocardial electrode implantation were performed. The postoperative course was uneventful.
