Abstract

The arterial switch operation (ASO) has become the primary surgical approach used for correction of transposition of the great arteries. All the prerequisites for a successful ASO were recognized in time and dealt with, which allowed general acceptation of the technique. We report on our technique for the procedure and the result to date. From January 1991 to January 2008, a total of 100 patients underwent ASO at our unit using medially-based trapdoor flap method. The neo-pulmonary artery (PA) was reconstructed using a single rectangular pericardial patch. The initial patient having intramural coronary artery died due to ischemic event after Aubert procedure. Three patients had re-right ventricular out flow tract repair (RVOTR) in a long-term follow-up period. There was no significant aortic insufficiency, no ischemic event and no lethal arrhythmia.
