Abstract

The evolution of surgical techniques for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) provides a moving target for the assessment of late arrhythmias. Imposed on varying anatomical substrates are progressive surgical interventions, each with its own set of sequelae. Analysis of the risk of arrhythmia development requires division into which arrhythmia is present, for which form of transposition, undergoing what type of surgery, and in which surgical era. For purposes of this review, available data on d-TGA undergoing Senning repairs, Mustard repairs, and arterial switch repairs and congenitally corrected TGA undergoing double switch repairs are reviewed.
