Overview

Complete or “d”- transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is the most common reason that newborns will by cyanotic within the first 24 hours of life. Atrial switch operations [Senning (1959) and Mustard (1964)] revolutionized the care for children born with d-TGA. But, these operations leave the right ventricle as the pump for the systemic circulation. Although the 20-30 year survival for patients after atrial switch operation is excellent, long-term issues related to right ventricular dysfunction and arrhythmias are common clinical challenges.

Objectives

  • Identify the salient echocardiographic features of patients after atrial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries
  • Assess systemic and pulmonary venous baffle patency in patients after atrial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries
  • Describe the long-term sequelae of the atrial switch operations for patients with transposition of the great arteries
