This research program builds a multi-center database of patients who have undergone an atrial switch procedure as an infant to surgically correct a congenital heart condition in which the great arteries (aorta and pulmonary artery) are transposed. Although the atrial switch procedure is rarely done today, researchers hope to collect enough patient information to better understand late outcomes and consequences of the atrial switch as this patient group ages through adulthood.
The study population comprises patients ages 18 and older who had a prior atrial switch procedure.
Males and Females: Ages 18 and older
