D-TGA Chat, Part 1: Life after an Arterial Switch or Rastelli procedure #ACHACares
Are you an adult diagnosed with D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA)? Did you have either an Arterial Switch or Rastelli procedure? Are you aware that D-TGA is a rare and complicated congenital heart disorder? Without the miracle of modern congenital heart surgery, it would not be survivable. Did you know that the surgical technique was dramatically modified about 40 years ago? This was done to try to restore the left heart as the major pumping chamber. While this improved the health of many, it also brought with it a unique set of problems and long-term concerns. Join Dr. Krasuski as he reviews what we know about arterial switch surgeries and what we still need to learn. Register today.
