Abstract

Between 1974 and 1979 171 patients with d-TGA were treated surgically, 109 had correcting operations. 77 patients with simple TGA had hemodynamic correction by atrial inversion techniques. 30 day survival rate was 96%. There were 3 late deaths. One patient had reoperation for superior vena cava obstruction. The methods of diagnosis, indication for surgery and the surgical procedure are described. Results of the Mustard technique (33 patients) technique in infants less than 2 years of age with simplie TGA. Mortality was one patient in each group. The incidence of arrhythmia was greater with the senning technique. Better growth potential of the atria with the Senning technique warrants further use of this method.
