Özet

Background: The arterial switch operation (ASO) has become the surgical approach of choice for transposition of the great arteries. The aim of this paper was to describe the outcomes in patients who underwent arterial switch operation and to analyze the predictors of in-hospital mortality and further need for reoperation at a single-center institution. We reviewed our 9-year experience with arterial switch operation (ASO) for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) or Taussig-Bing anomaly (TBA) to assess the early and midterm outcomes.
