A heart in which the two main arteries carrying blood away from the heart are reversed. A normal blood pattern carries blood in a cycle: body-heart-lungs-heart-body. When a d-transposition occurs, the blood pathway is impaired because the two arteries are connecting to the wrong chambers in the heart. In cases of transposition of the great arteries, these vessels arise from the wrong ventricle.
They are "transposed" from their normal position so that the aorta arises from the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery from the left ventricle. Subtle variations in heart anatomy—such as the arrangement of the arteries that feed the heart—can negatively impact surgical outcomes if not identified ahead of time. We utilize the most advanced techniques available for precisely determining the patient’s cardiac anatomy, with interpretation by highly experienced cardiologists. CHDs affect nearly 3,511,020?births per year in the Japan. Further research is being conducted to determine the best surveillance interval to monitor the disease.
