Arterial switch operation after multiple-stage left ventricular retraining.

PMID:  12478819     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Right ventricular dysfunction and tricuspid valve incompetence after atrial repair for transposition of the great arteries is an increasingly frequent problem. Left ventricular retraining to convert an atrial switch to an arterial switch is a well-known surgical option but can require a multiple-stage surgical approach. We report our successful multiple-stage experience with a 5-year-old girl.
