Abstract

Abstract: Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a rare congenital heart lesion with varied morphological presentation and can often by asymptomatic. A failing systemic right ventricle (RV) or increasing tricuspid regurgitation are generally indications for surgical intervention. The surgical approach depends upon the age of the patient and morphology of the lesion. Anatomical correction is associated with satisfactory long-term results.
