Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this paper was to describe the outcomes in patients submitted to arterial switch operation and to analyze the predictors of in-hospital mortality and further need of re-operation at a single-center institution. We reviewed our 7-year experience with arterial switch operation (ASO) for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) or Taussig-Bing anomaly (TBA) to assess the early and mid-term outcomes.
