Contemporary management and outcomes in congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries
Kutty S#1, Danford DA#1, Diller GP2, Tutarel O3. Author information Abstract Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) can occur in isolation, or in combination with other structural cardiac anomalies, most commonly ventricular septal defect, pulmonary stenosis and tricuspid valve disease. Clinical recognition can be challenging, so echocardiography is often the means by which definitive diagnosis is made. The tricuspid valve and right ventricle are on the systemic arterial side of the ccTGA circulation, and are therefore subject to progressive functional deterioration. The natural history of ccTGA is also greatly influenced by the nature and severity of accompanying lesions, some of which require surgical repair. Some management strategies leave the right ventricle as the systemic arterial pump, but carry the risk of worsening heart failure. More complex 'double switch' repairs establish the left ventricle as the systemic pump, and include an atrial baffle to redirect venous return in combination with either arterial switch or Rastelli operation (if a suitable ventricular septal defect permits). Occasionally, the anatomic peculiarities of ccTGA do not allow straightforward biventricular repair, and Fontan palliation is a reasonable option. Regardless of the approach selected, late cardiovascular complications are relatively common, so ongoing outpatient surveillance should be established in an age-appropriate facility with expertise in congenital heart disease care.

Sugiura T1,2, Kurihara C1,2,3, Kawabori M1,2, Critsinelis AC1,2, Civitello AB1,2, Morgan JA1,2, Frazier OH1,2. Author information Abstract An increasing number of children with congenital heart disease are surviving into adulthood and subsequently developing end-stage heart failure. Two example populations are adults who have been previously operated on for congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) and transposition of the great arteries (TGA). Implantation of a continuous flow left ventricular assist device (CF-LVAD) in these patients can present unusual anatomical and physiologic challenges. In this report, we describe outcomes of CF-LVAD implantation in three such patients. These cases demonstrate the feasibility of implanting a CF-LVAD in patients who have undergone surgery for CCTGA and/or TGA.

Abstract We describe the technical aspects of performing an atrial switch operation in a 4-year-old boy with d-transposition of the great arteries and partial anomalous drainage of the left-sided pulmonary veins. The rarity of the condition is discussed. KEYWORDS: Heart defects, atrial, congenital, heart septal defects, pulmonary circulation, pulmonary veins, transposition of great vessels

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Our objectives are to review the surgical procedures that have been performed for the treatment of transposition of the great vessels. Using MRI, we illustrate the normal postoperative findings and many of the long-term complications for each of the surgical procedures.
CONCLUSION: MRI is an extremely useful imaging method for evaluation of normal and abnormal findings after surgical repair of transposition of the aorta and pulmonary artery.
Arterial switch for transposition of the great vessels and Taussig-Bing anomaly after six months of age
Ann Thorac Surg. 2009 Dec;88(6):1948-51.
Feng B, Liu Y, Hu S, Shen X, Wang X, Wang H, Ming B. Source Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, The Second of Chuanbei Clinical Medical College, Nanchong, People's Republic of China. email@example.com Abstract BACKGROUND: Indications and outcomes of the arterial switch operation in children who are older than 1 month of age and have transposition of the great arteries plus ventricular septal defect or Taussig-Bing anomaly were studied. METHODS: Arterial switch operation was performed in 68 children between January 2000 and December 2008. Thirty infants (1 to 6 months old) had transposition of the great arteries plus ventricular septal defect or Taussig-Bing anomaly (group A), and 38 children older than 6 months of age had transposition of the great arteries plus ventricular septal defect or Taussig-Bing anomaly (group B). The preoperative pulmonary artery pressure in group B was significantly higher than that in group A (46.5 +/- 16.3 mm Hg and 31.3 +/- 8.6 mm Hg, respectively; p < 0.05). Arterial switch operation was performed under general anesthesia, hypothermia (18 degrees to 22 degrees C), and low-flow (50 mL x kg(-1) x min(-1)) extracorporeal bypass circulation. Concomitant cardiac anomalies were treated during the same surgical session. RESULTS: Average extracorporeal circulation time, aortic clamping time, postoperative overall hospitalization, and intensive care unit duration were not significantly different between the two groups (p > 0.05). The operative mortality rate in group A was 10.0% (3 of 30 patients) and in group B, 7.9% (3 of 38 patients; p > 0.05). Follow-up examinations in the surviving 62 patients after a mean of 13.5 +/- 7.9 months (range, 0.5 to 56 months) showed significantly improved cardiac function without any long-term complications, and no cases of death occurred during this period. CONCLUSIONS: Arterial switch operation shows satisfactory operative outcome of transposition of the great arteries plus ventricular septal defect or Taussig-Bing anomaly in children older than the age of 6 months with moderate-to-severe pulmonary hypertension.
