OBJECTIVE To describe the sensitivity of fetal anomaly scanning at detecting transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and to investigate whether prenatal detection improves survival. DESIGN Retrospective review of survival by comparing those who had an antenatal diagnosis with those who did not. SETTING Population-based study in Wessex region over 13 years. POPULATION Babies with isolated TGA and an intact ventricular septum. METHODS Review of outcomes by comparing those who had an… CONTINUE READING
