BACKGROUND: The Senning and Mustard operations for DTGA are associated with a heightened risk for supraventricular tachycardia. Catheter ablation has been shown to be acutely successful for achieving rhythm control in this population, but the mechanisms of recurrence are ill-defined. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that the type and degree of recurrence would vary by the surgical technique employed. METHODS: All consecutive catheter ablation procedures for DTGA after Mustard/Senning operation between 2004 and 2016 at a single center were reviewed...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The literature on sudden death in transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) with atrial switch surgery is reviewed and a pathophysiological mechanism is proposed. RECENT FINDINGS: Over 80% of sudden deaths in patients with D-TGA and Mustard or Senning baffles occur during exercise. Factors most consistently associated with ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death include heart failure parameters and atrial arrhythmias. Atrial arrhythmias have been observed to trigger malignant ventricular arrhythmias...

OBJECTIVES: To report our experience with intravascular and hybrid intra-operative stent placement for baffle obstruction in patients with complete transposition of the great arteries (TGA) after the atrial switch (Mustard/Senning) operation. BACKGROUND: Venous baffle obstruction is a challenging complication after atrial switch operation in patients with TGA. Traditional treatment options include intravascular stenting or surgery. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of Mayo Clinic's electronic medical record was completed to identify consecutive pediatric and adult patients with TGA after atrial switch who underwent baffle stent implantation from 1994 to 2015...

The Melody® transcatheter pulmonary valve system was developed for placement within right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduits in patients with CHD for treatment of stenosis or regurgitation, providing an alternative to open-heart surgery. Abnormal systemic venous connections altering the catheter course to the right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit may present a challenge to Melody® valve implantation. We present two such cases, in which the Melody® valve was successfully implanted in teenage patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries after Senning atrial switch operation...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac death is a major contributor to mortality for adults with congenital heart disease. The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) has emerged as a novel tool for prevention of sudden cardiac death, but clinical performance data for adults with congenital heart disease are limited. METHODS AND RESULTS: A retrospective study involving 7 centers over a 5-year period beginning in 2011 was performed. Twenty-one patients (median 33...

BACKGROUND: Patients with systemic right ventricles frequently experience progressive heart failure and conduction abnormalities leading to abnormal ventricular activation. Activation delay-induced mechanical dyssynchrony can contribute to ventricular failure and is identified by a classic strain pattern of paradoxical opposing wall motion that is an excellent predictor of response to cardiac resynchronization therapy in adults with left bundle branch block. The specific aims of this study were to compare right ventricular (RV) mechanics in an adult systemic right ventricle population versus control subjects, evaluate the feasibility of this RV strain pattern analysis, and determine the frequency of the classic pattern...

OBJECTIVES: In developing countries, where patients present late, the atrial switch operation is still a preferred palliation for d-transposition of great arteries (d-TGA). In this report, we present our experience in patients with d-TGA who were 5 years of age or older. METHODS: Twenty-seven patients underwent an atrial switch procedure between January 2004 and December 2014. The standard technique consisted of a combination of the Senning and Mustard's repair with Schumacker's in situ modification for construction of the pulmonary venous baffle...

We have encountered a hitherto undescribed anatomical variant of pulmonary vein anatomy in hearts with d-transposition or congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. In this variant, the inferior right pulmonary vein lies posterior rather than inferior to the superior right pulmonary vein. This variant of pulmonary vein anatomy may predispose to the development of pulmonary venous pathway obstruction following a Senning operation, since it is difficult to open the pulmonary veins in a way that ensures a wide-open pulmonary venous pathway to the atrioventricular valve of the systemic ventricle...

BACKGROUND: We evaluated long-term outcomes of the arterial switch operation (ASO) conversion after a failed Senning/Mustard operation among patients with dextro-transposition of the great arteries. METHODS: Between 1986 and 2006, 9 patients with dextro-transposition of the great arteries underwent ASO conversion at our institute. All patients had systemic right ventricle failure, 6 had supraventricular tachycardia, and 8 had moderate or severe tricuspid valve regurgitation...

BACKGROUND: Report results of neoaortic regurgitation (NAR) after arterial switch for patients with d-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) and corrected transposition of the great arteries. METHODS: From 2003 to 2013, 583 patients who underwent arterial switch operation for d-TGA and 31 patients who underwent double switch (DS) for congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (cc-TGA) were included in this retrospective study. Since 2011, concomitant neoaortic sinotubular junction reconstruction was performed if aorta and pulmonary artery discrepancy was present in patients with d-TGA...

We present a case of 12-month-old boy with congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries with L-looped ventricles and L-transposition of great arteries and ventricular septal defect. When admitted to the hospital, the patient had the appearance of congestive heart failure due to moderate to severe tricuspid valve regurgitation and right ventricle dysfunction. The pulmonary artery (PA) banding was required first because of low systolic pressure in the morphological left ventricle less than 70% confirmed by catheterization...

Neonatal arterial switch operation for simple dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) has almost eliminated the occurrence of pulmonary vascular obstructive disease compared to patients who underwent Mustard or Senning procedure at an older age. We report a case of a neonate with d-TGA and intact ventricular septum who underwent arterial switch operation and yet developed severe pulmonary vascular obstructive disease within two months.

BACKGROUND: Anatomic repair has become the preferred option in the subgroup of patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary obstruction. We report our 14-year experience with this approach. METHODS: From April 2001 to February 2014, 22 patients with congenitally corrected transposition with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary obstruction underwent anatomic repair. Nineteen patients had a modified Senning-Rastelli procedure, 2 had a Mustard-Rastelli procedure, and one had a hemi-Mustard-Glenn-Rastelli procedure...

The arterial switch operation has been the procedure of first choice for correction of transposition of the great arteries (TGA) for several decades now. However, a large number of adult patients with TGA nowadays were palliated previously by either a Mustard or a Senning procedure. Atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATs) are frequently observed during long-term follow-up of patients with TGA after these atrial switch corrections and are associated with both morbidity and mortality. Because of the complex postoperative anatomy in these patients, ablative therapy for these tachyarrhythmias can be challenging...

OBJECTIVES: In patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) or after atrial (Mustard or Senning) correction for transposition of the great arteries (acTGA), the right ventricle (RV) supports the systemic circulation. The tricuspid valve (TV) (systemic atrioventricular valve) is prone to regurgitation in these patients and this is associated with impending RV failure and decreased survival. This study evaluates mid-term functional improvements, echocardiographic findings and survival after TV surgery in this patient group...

The association of transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and anomalous pulmonary venous connection is extremely rare. Children with transposition of the great arteries improved dramatically with the advent of the atrial repair. In this report, we describe a 40-day old male infant with TGA and associated anomalous pulmonary venous connection who presented with the history of cyanosis and hurried breathing. This patient underwent successful balloon atrial septostomy and discharged with uneventful recovery...

AIMS: Patients with dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) status post atrial switch operation are vulnerable to complications such as baffle leaks. The best noninvasive imaging modality to detect baffle leaks is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity of different noninvasive imaging modalities in the detection of baffle leaks in this population. METHODS AND RESULTS: A single center retrospective chart review of atrial switch patients was performed...

BACKGROUND: Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is the most common cyanotic cardiopathy, with an incidence ranging between 0.2 and 0.4 per 1000 live births. Many patients not treated in the first few months of life may progress with severe pulmonary vascular disease. Treatment of these patients may include palliative surgery to redirect the flow at the atrial level. OBJECTIVE: Report our institutional experience with the palliative Senning procedure in children diagnosed with TGA and double outlet right ventricle with severe pulmonary vascular disease, and to evaluate the early and late clinical progression of the palliative Senning procedure...
