Hypoplastic ascending aorta and interrupted aortic arch (IAA) are rarely associated with dextro-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA). Severe hypoplastic ascending aorta may preclude coronary artery transfer making arterial switch operation problematic. We report a case of D-TGA with a large subpulmonic ventricular septal defect, IAA, and hypoplastic ascending aorta that underwent successful biventricular surgical repair without coronary artery transfer.

To characterize treatment of transposition of great arteries with ventricular septal defect and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (TGA-VSD-LVOTO) in Germany, and to analyze late outcomes.
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) is a rare congenital malformation which associates discordant atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial connections. Although frequent...
We describe a rare case of newborn with aortic atresia and transposition of the great arteries who underwent successful surgical repair. To the best of our knowledge, no such case has been previously ...
The main complication in adult patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) treated by an arterial switch operation (ASO) is neopulmonary outflow tract stenosis (NPOTS). However, pulmonary ...
Characterization of the Cardiac Reinnervation of Patients With Transposition of the Great Arteries Long After Repair With the Arterial Switch Operation. Correlation With Electrocardiographic and Exercise Test Parameters
Cardiac denervation is inherent to the arterial switch (ASO) technique for the repair of transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and the long term reinnervation process has not been stud...
In complete transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with previous atrial switch repair, and congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA), the morphological right ve...
Calcium sensitizer drugs such as Levosimendan may exert anti-ischemic effect in addition to positive inotropic and anti-stunning effects mediated by the opening of ATP-sensitive potassium ...
This prospective study will examine whether transient maternal hyperoxygenation is useful as a diagnostic test to more accurately detect TGA patients with poor vs. good neonatal intra-card...
The aim of this project is to better evaluate the systemic right ventricular (RV) function in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA).
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Surgical procedure for anatomical correction of transposed great arteries (e.g., DOUBLE OUTLET RIGHT VENTRICLE).
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Spasm of the large- or medium-sized coronary arteries.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
