The presence of associated anomalies in patients with double-outlet right ventricle can significantly alter surgical intervention. Preoperative delineation of these anomalies can facilitate surgical planning and improve outcome. We describe a case in which the right coronary artery and anterior descending coronary artery arose from the pulmonary artery in a patient with double-outlet right ventricle with subpulmonary ventricular septal defect (Taussig-Bing anomaly). Recognition of this important anomaly prevented significant intraoperative myocardial damage by altering techniques of cardioplegia administration for myocardial preservation.
