Aortic root translocation is a surgical choice offering potential advantages for combinations of transposition of the great arteries (TGA), pulmonary stenosis (PS), and ventricular septal defect (VSD). Six patients were included in this analysis. All of them were diagnosed with TGA, PS, and VSD and all of them underwent the Nikaidoh procedure. In 2 of these 6 cases (33.3%), aortic translocation was performed on a beating heart. Performing aortic root translocation on a beating heart is probably useful in reducing the cross-clamp time and the mortality rate, as well as preventing coronary malposition.
