Congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries (ccTGA) may essentially present as two clinical phenotypes viz. with left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO), presenting as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) physiology, or sans LVOTO, presenting with systemic ventricular dysfunction. The natural history and treatment, especially the role of pulmonary artery (PA) band, have been discussed.
