BACKGROUND Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a complex cardiac lesion, usually associated with ventricular septal defect, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and tricuspid valve abnormalities. A subset of patients without left ventricular outflow tract obstruction have undergone Senning plus arterial switch operation in an attempt to place the left ventricle in the systemic circuit and the right ventricle in the pulmonary circuit. METHODS Fourteen patients… CONTINUE READING
