In the present report we describe a neonate with the common arterial trunk who underwent reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract with a downsized value allograft. Our experience and results suggest that reducing the size of the allograft is a promising surgical option for young infants in whom reconstruction of the nonregurgitant pulmonary circulatory system is absolutely needed for a smooth postoperative recovery.
