Abstract

Arterial switch operation has been widely accepted as a treatment of transposition of the great arteries with reasonable mortality and morbidity rate though, several complications has been reported. We report a patient with d-TGA and VSD presented with progressive respiratory distress due to bronchial compression by largely dilated main pulmonary trunk. Triangle shape partial resection of the anterior wall of the pulmonary artery trunk, which was used for an augmentation of the neo-aorta was successfully performed as a modified arterial switch operation. Her symptom has been disappeared after the surgery and she has been followed at outpatient clinic with reasonable growth at 6 years after surgery.
