A Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) anastomosis, i.e. an end-to-side anastomosis between the pulmonary artery and the aorta, has been applied in a wide spectrum of congenital heart disease including the Fontan circulation. We hereby present a 19-year-old woman with tricuspid atresia, transposition of great arteries, hypoplastic right ventricle, and a ventricular septal defect who was operated with total cavo-pulmonary connection (TCPC) and a DKS anastomosis. The Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) study showed that the systemic ventricular outflow tract is not obstructed with a good overall result of the previous interventions. CMR therefore, is an ideal mean for studying detailed anatomy and physiology without any need for radiation or contrast media.
