In this report, we present our experience with combined en bloc combined heart and liver transplantation performed in 2015 on a 29-year-old male with Ebstein's anomaly with cardiac cirrhosis and decompensation. Entire procedure was done under cardiopulmonary bypass. Portocaval shunting was done during the procedure to reduce bowel congestion. He remains well on regular follow-up at 4 years. This is the first procedure to be reported from India.
