Abstract

Right ventricular dysfunction and tricuspid valve incompetence after atrial repair for transposition of the great arteries is an increasingly frequent problem. Left ventricular retraining to convert an atrial switch to an arterial switch is a well-known surgical option but can require a multiple-stage surgical approach. We report our successful multiple-stage experience with a 5-year-old girl.
