Abstract

SummaryAlthough uncertainty exists, in some situations, as to the optimal type of operation and a true cure may not always be possible, the outlook for patients with all types of complete transposition is poor without surgical treatment. With surgery, and in spite of current uncertainties as to the optimal type of repair, most patients can be greatly benefited, and many given a long and happy life. Even more should be possible in the future.
