Neonatal correction of transposition of the great arteries: the Connecticut experience



Neonatal correction of transposition of the great arteries: the Connecticut experience



Connecticut Medicine 56(12): 671-674



The treatment of transposition of the great arteries, a common congenital cardiac defect, has undergone significant development. Prior to 1989 a surgical approach which repaired the transposition at the atrial level (Senning's operation), but did not restore normal anatomy, was the procedure of choice. Since 1989 a surgical approach that restores normal anatomy (Jatene's arterial switch) has been followed. Forty-four patients have been corrected since 1979 (N = 26 Senning's operation, N = 18 arterial switch). The arterial switch patients are corrected at an earlier age, have a longer, more complex operation without a significant increase in operative mortality, intensive care, or duration of hospitalization. The prevalence or frequency of normal ventricular function and normal sinus rhythm is significantly increased over the repair at the atrial level. The frequency of pulmonary stenosis is increased. The duration of follow-up for these patients is significantly shorter than for those with atrial level repair.
