Corrected Transposition of the Great Arteries
Associated Ventricular Rotation
Two patients with corrected transposition of the great arteries and ventricular rotation are described. The ventricular rotations encountered were about the longitudinal and the anteroposterior axes, respectively. The ventricular rotation affected the plane of the ventricular septum, the inflow and outflow tracts of the ventricles, and the interrelationship of the great arteries. Surgical closure of an associated ventricular septal defect was not without its problems.
