A clinical case of successful repair of a combination of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) with collector stenosis in one-day-old newborn. Only one case of successful correction of such a pathology is reported previously. The operation was performed with cardiopulmonary bypass and temporary antegrade brain perfusion. The narrowed aortic area was resected, the integrity of the aortic arch was restored using an extended anastomosis, and TAPVC correction was performed using a “sutureless technique”. The postoperative period was uneventful. The newborn was discharged from hospital on the 12th day.
