Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a rare acyanotic heart disease. The evaluation of the hemodynamic alteration, before and after delivery, has been poorly reported. This case report is about a hispanic patient presented in the third trimester of pregnancy with a systolic murmur and a loud second pulmonary sound. Echocardiographic study revealed a CCTGA with dilatation of the morphologically right ventricle (RV), severe regurgitation of the tricuspid valve and secondary pulmonary hypertension without other heart defects. The patient had a full term pregnancy, without any complication before, during or after the childbirth.
