The incidence of late systemic ventricular failure (SVF) was determined in 220 early survivors of atrial correction for transposition of great arteries (TGA), operated upon between 1964 and 1985. SVF was defined as either severe heart failure (NYHA class III or IV) or death due to the same cause, in the absence of other haemodynamic disturbances. The actuarial survival rate was 96% after 1, 94% after 5 and 87% after 10 years. SVF occurred in 16/220 patients (7.2%). SVF was more common in… CONTINUE READING
