Park and colleagues sought to identify risk factors that could predict the need for systemic outflow relief operations (SORO) in newborn patients with transposed great arteries and either double-inlet left ventricle or tricuspid atresia. The authors evaluated data from 20 patients with double-inlet left ventricle and 10 patients with tricuspid atresia who underwent single-ventricle palliation between 2000 and 2018. Approximately 67% of patients underwent SORO, and arch obstruction and smaller systemic outflow tract area index at end-systolic phase were both predictive of a subsequent need for an SORO.
