Hraska and colleagues present a retrospective study of outcomes following congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries using the morphologically left ventricle as the systemic pumping chamber. Patients were followed for a median of 5 years, with a range up to 20 years. Overall survival and event-free survival were good, and only one of the 63 patients had worse than mild dysfunction of the morphologically left ventricle.

This research was presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the audio discussion that followed the presentation accompanies the article.
