Complete correction of transposition of the great arteries with left juxtaposition of the atrial appendages

Bernardo Vidne, S. Subramanian

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Juxtaposition of the atrial appendages is an uncommon anomaly which is usually associated with transposition of the great arteries. Experience with 5 patients with transposition of the great arteries in combination with juxtaposition of the atrial appendages in whom Mustard's operation was performed is reviewed. Technically, the existence of juxtaposition of the atrial appendages in corrective surgery for transposition does not present any additional surgical problems. Emphasis is placed on the advantages of early complete correction, avoiding the need for palliative procedure.
