1-Transposition of the Great Arteries

Abstract

Although the circulation is normal in this anomaly, surgical repair of associated lesions may be necessary. Ventricular septal defect (VSD) and/or pulmonary stenosis is common, and technical aspects of repair of these problems are unusual because of differences in ventricular morphology. The double-switch operation is also gaining popularity in order to place the morphologic left ventricle in the systemic circulation, and the morphologic right ventricle in the pulmonary ciruclation.
