Three patients developed late pulmonary vein obstruction (PVO) following Mustard's operation for transposition of the great arteries. In all three the absence of PVO had been documented by an earlier postoperative cardiac catheterization. At reoperation shrinkage and kinking of the dacron baffle was evident. After Mustard's operation, patients should be observed closely for symptoms and signs of PVO since it can occur insidiously despite previously proven absence of this complication.

Fourteen patients have been studied hemodynamically 4-10 years (mean 5.5 years) after the Mustard operation for transposition of the great arteries. Investigation was directed principally at 1) the detection of baffle obstruction by catheterization of the pulmonary veins (PV) and venae cavae and recording of simultaneous right ventricular (RV) and pulmonary capillary wedge pressures (PCW); 2) the detection of intra-atrial baffle leaks by dye curves and selective angiography; 3) the assessment of...

Correction of transposition of the great arteries is accomplished by a modified Rastelli procedure, if an adequate ventricular septal defect is present, or by an intra-atrial baffle procedure, if the ventricular septal defect is small or absent. The Albert or Mustard procedure for transposition of the great arteries should be regarded more precisely as the first stage in a series of procedures which may be necessary in any given case. Prosthetic material for the intra-atrial baffle is no guarant...

Sixty-three infants with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) aged 3 weeks to 12 months, have had Mustard's operation between 1967 and 1973. Their weights ranged from 3.7 to 9.5 kilograms. Fifty-two had TGA and atrial septal defect (ASD), 10 had TGA and ventricular septal defect (VSD), and 1 had TGA, VSD, and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO). Fifty-eight infants were operated upon with cardiopulmonary bypass, while deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest was used in 5. Fif...

Abstract Complications related to the late deterioration in the autologous pericardial baffle used in the surgical correction of transposition of the great vessels may be prevented by using a fabric graft. A contoured knitted baffle is described that may be fabricated from available knitted crimped Dacron vascular prostheses.

The intraatrial baffle used in physiological repair of transposition of the great arteries can fibrose and alter its shape, producing venous obstruction, so that refashioning may become necessary as a secondary procedure. Reopcration under these circumstances is difficult, and can be made easier by using a simple perfusion technique requiring a minimum of dissection for cannulation. A technique is described utilising a “left atrial” to femoral artery bypass combined with core cooling, and two il...

Improved estimates of the indexed rate of oxygen consumption ( V O2/BSA) are provided for use in calculating haemodynamic quantities in cardiac catheterization. They were derived from a multivariate analysis of covariance applied to 879 patients, mostly children, with a wide variety of heart diseases.

Abstract Although the arterial switch operation has become the standard form of surgical repair for complete transposition of the great arteries, a large number of adults post-atrial switch are still followed in current practice. Pulmonary venous baffle obstruction is a well-known complication of the atrial switch operation, mimicking heart failure. Its recognition is important as it is a potentially treatable disease. In the past, retrograde pulmonary venous atrium (PVA)/pulmonary venous baffle...
Complete transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is a common congenital heart disease. The surgical strategy for d-TGA has changed from the atrial switch operation to the arterial switch operation. This chapter describes the postoperative concerns regarding these two switch operations as well as details of the management of adult patients with repaired d-TGA. Long-term complications after the atrial switch operation include intra-atrial baffle-related problems, arrhythmias, right ventricular...

The reported case involved a 7-year-old girl with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) and situs inversus who after surgical management experienced symptoms of dyspnea and left-sided obstructive heart disease. Her symptoms, chest X-ray, and cardiac catheterization demonstrated pulmonary venous obstruction, a known but rare complication associated with intra-atrial baffle obstruction. The incidence of the reported disorder, the follow-up assessment, and the current l...

Abstract Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is an uncommon complication of atrial switch repair (Mustard or Senning) for d-transposition of the great arteries (dTGA), often difficult to diagnose by trans-thoracic echocardiography. This patient population is unique in that heart failure and elevated filling pressures are common after atrial switch repairs. Most studies evaluating the use of PAH therapies have excluded this group of patients. Methods Our echocardiography database was reviewed f...

A 14-year-old boy after a Mustard procedure for transposition of the great arteries developed pulmonary hypertension secondary to baffle obstruction. This occurred over several years without apparent significant symptomatology. Systemic-level pressure prevailed in the left (pulmonary) ventricle and provided an opportunity to perform a successful one-stage arterial switch.

Obstruction of the systemic venous pathway is a complication in patients who have undergone the Mustard operation for complete transposition of the great arteries. In this report, we discuss intravascular stent placement in three patients for relief of superior vena caval obstruction after the Mustard operation. The clinical history, cardiac catheterization data, and echocardiographic data before and after stent placement are presented for each patient. Overall, four stents were placed. The mean...

Two patients underwent an arterial switch procedure for the relief of severe pulmonary venous obstruction complicating a Mustard procedure. Without preparatory pulmonary banding, both patients had adequate left ventricular function due to secondary pulmonary hypertension. At 8 and 4 years after the procedure, both patients are in New York Heart Association functional class I, with echocardiographic evidence of good left and right ventricular function.

Since April 1976, 34 infants (25 male and 9 female) less than 1 month of age underwent a Mustard intraatrial baffle procedure for repair of simple transposition of the great arteries. Thirty patients were less than 2 weeks old and 19 patients less than 1 week (mean 7.8±6 days). The weights ranged from 2.6 to 4.4 kg (mean 3.4±0.4 kg). Rashkind balloon atrial septostomy was performed in the first hours or beys of life in 29 patients. The average interval from balloon atrial septostomy to baffle re...

Pulmonary venous pathway obstruction developed after a Mustard procedure in an infant with transposition of the great arteries. The stenosis was successfully dilated by the percutaneous balloon technique with immediate clinical, echocardiographic, and hemo-dynamic improvement, which has persisted for 8 months after dilation. This technique is a feasible alternative to reoperation in such an obstruction, even in infants.

Abstract Previous methods used to assess atrial baffle function after correction of transposition of the great arteries have included precordial echocardiography and cardiac catheterization. To evaluate whether single plane transesophageal echocardiography might provide additional information, its findings were correlated with information derived from both precordial echocardiography and cardiac catheterization in 15 patients (14 Mustard procedures, 1 Senning procedure) aged 4.2 to 33 years (mea...
