Abstract/OtherAbstract:
AIMS: To assess the cardiac outcome and risk factors for mortality of infants following the arterial switch operation (ASO). METHODS: A single-centre retrospective review was conducted. Preoperative assessment, operative management and outcome was detailed for 244 patients undergoing the ASO at Green Lane Hospital for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) or double outlet right ventricle. RESULTS: The postoperative survival at 1, 5 and 15 years was 85%, 84% and 83%, respectively. The calendar year of ASO and the presence of a ventricular septal defect (VSD) were the primary predictors of early mortality. Late mortality was associated with a side-by-side configuration of the great arteries. Re-intervention following ASO was more common in patients with prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass time. CONCLUSIONS: Low early and late morbidity and mortality can be obtained in infants with TGA or double outlet right ventricle by definitive repair utilising the ASO.
