Anatomic correction of transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is usually done at a young age and always entails circumferential anastomoses of the aorta and coronary arteries. Longterm success of this procedure is predicated on adequate growth of these anastomotic sites. To assess these anastomoses, 25 patients (pts) underwent one or two cardiac catheterizations frcm 1 to 53 months (mean 18.8 months) following anatomic correction. Early catheterizations (mean 12 months following repair) were… CONTINUE READING
