Abstract

Dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is the one most common cyanotic congenital heart disease in neonates. The discordant ventriculoarterial arrangement results in parallel circulation, it so is vital to understand the management. We report a rare interesting but critical case of 33-day-old boy who developed cyanosis and had transposition of great arteries combined with interrupted aortic arch (IAA), diagnosed as d-TGA, and describe the entire interventional management. The patient underwent surgical correction of the transfection and defects.
