"double switch" procedure for congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries.
Posted By Craig on May 07, 1998 at 07:58:53:







I am 38 years old and was diagnosed with congenitally corrected transposition
of the great arteries about 6 years ago.  I have been advised that I may be
a candidate for the "double switch" procedure to correct my transposition.
I was implanted with a pacemaker about 5 years ago because of complete con-
genital heart block.  I am basically asymptomatic although my mitral valve
has a slight to moderate regurgitation and my tricuspid has a moderate  re-
gurgitation. I have been told that my "ejection fraction" is 35% by echo.
Am I a candidate for this operation?  What can someone in my situation expect?
