A case of a 4 year old girl who underwent successful correction of a Collett Edwards type II truncus arteriosus following bilateral pulmonary artery banding is reported herein. The diagnosis of Collett Edwards type II truncus arteriosus was made when she was 5 months of age, after which the bilateral pulmonary artery banding was performed. This proved very effective and enabled elective radial surgery to be done. The radical operation was performed safely by a modified version of Rastelli's procedure. The patient had an uneventful recovery and is now well with no symptoms one year following her operation.
