Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a rare disease accounting for 0.5-1.4% of patients with congenital heart disease. In this congenital cardiopathy, the left atrium is connected to the right ventricle, from which the aorta stems. We present a case of an adult with CCTGA associated with aortic stenosis and bicuspid aortic valve-an association not yet described to our knowledge. (Echocardiography 2011;**:E1-E3).
