Abstract


[first paragraph of article]

There is a continuing need to perform inflow correction of “simple” TGA in a large subset of patients, who are not candidates for the arterial switch operation, particularly in developing countries. This
is because of a lack of resources, centres and expertise to perform the neonatal switch operation. This subsequently results in the “late” presentation of patients who are severely cyanosed and have thin-walled, banana-shaped left ventricles which are not suitable for switching.
