Transposition of the Great Vessels with Atrial Septal Defect
A Hemodynamic Study in Two Cases
In complete transposition of the great vessels, survival is possible only when a route of access exists by means of which venous blood may enter the lungs. This report concerns 2 patients in relatively good health in whom a high degree of mixing of venous and arterial blood occurred through an atrial septal defect. The diagnosis was established in both patients by cardiac catheterization.
