OBJECTIVE To describe the optimal surgical strategy in heart specimens with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO). METHODS Thirty-three specimens with LVOTO were selected: TGA with intact ventricular septum (TGA/IVS) (10), TGA/VSD (21), and Taussig-Bing (2). RESULTS LVOTO in TGA/IVS consisted of combinations of bicuspid pulmonary valve (four), subpulmonary fibrous ridge (four), obstructive muscular conus (two) and bulging muscular… CONTINUE READING
