Abstract

The transposition of the great arteries (aorta and main pulmonary artery) is a pathological condition which is faced with negative outcome in the very first years of life, if left untreated. A surgical procedure for restoring a more physiological situation is the Mustard procedure, which allows total correction of transposition of the great vessels, by means of surgical redirection of caval blood flow to appropriate atria. In the Mustard procedure, pulmonary and systemic circulation are driven by the left and right ventricle, respectively. The present study is meant to characterize, by means of computational simulation, the aortic hemodynamics in patients operated on with a Mustard procedure, in order to highlight whether the native connection of the aorta to the right ventricle can cause particular concerns, with respect to the physiological case.
