Abstract
Background: Lund is one of the two tertiary referral centers for pediatric cardiac surgery in Sweden, with nearly 350 surgical procedures every year. We performed a retrospective analysis of newborns and infants with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) operated with arterial switch (ASO) during the past 10 years. Methods: a single-institution retrospective analysis of nearly 100 newborns and infants with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) operated with arterial switch during the past 10 years. Postoperative morbidity and mortality during the the first month was recorded.Patients with TGA/double outlet right ventricle were excluded from the analysis. Results: 103 patients with TGA (median for birth weight, gestational week, and... (More)

Results: 103 patients with TGA (median for birth weight, gestational week, and age at surgery: 3.5 kg, 39 weeks, and 4 days) were included. There was only 1 death. Surgery beyond 5 days of age (n=46) was associated with prolonged mechanical ventilation (p (Less)
