Early- and intermediate-term results of the arterial switch operation for D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) are encouraging. However, questions remain about the long-term outcome for these patients, especially with regard to exercise performance. Preliminary studies have demonstrated normal endurance time on treadmills. However, data regarding aerobic capacity and cardiopulmonary function are lacking. We report the cardiopulmonary performance of 22 school-age patients with D-TGA who… CONTINUE READING
