Abstract

Because of the inadequacies of physiologic correction of transposition of the great arteries (TGA), the authors have been experimenting with direct anatomic correction of the anomaly. The procedure involves switching the aorta (with the coronary arteries attached) and the pulmonary artery. Studies in preserved infant hearts have indicated the technical feasibility of this operation. Results with the reverse of the procedure, to create a laboratory model of TGA in dogs, have also been encouraging.
