Management of spelling low weight infants with complex tetralogy of Fallot is often fraught. We present a 2.8-kg infant with DiGeorge syndrome and spelling tetralogy with non-confluent pulmonary arteries, the left pulmonary artery being supplied by an aberrant ductus arteriosus from the left common carotid artery. We performed stenting of the outflow tract and the ductus to allow this patient to achieve a successful elective surgical correction.
