Abstract

SummarySince the success of the arterial switch procedure is dependent on the successful translocation of the coronary arteries, a thorough understanding of the anatomic variations of the coronary arteries is essential. We reviewed the anatomy of the coronary arteries encountered in 140 consecutive cases undergoing the arterial switch procedure for complete transposition at the Heart Institute of Japan. The anatomic variations, described using the Shaher and Puddu classification, varied significantly, requiring alteration in the surgical technique.
