Article

Summary

This report describes a case of corrected transposition of the great arteries (TGA) in which a classic subaortic membrane resulted in significant obstruction to outflow from the morphologically right ventricle. To our knowledge, discrete subaortic obstruction has not been previously reported with corrected TGA.

Key words
