Disease Transposition of Great Vessels

Name Transposition of Great Vessels
Synonyms Dextro Looped Transposition of the Great Arteries | Dextro-Looped Transposition of the Great Arteries | Great Arteries Transposition | Great Arteries Transpositions | Great Vessels Transposition | Great Vessels Transpositions | Transposition of Great Arteries
Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which the AORTA arises entirely from the RIGHT VENTRICLE, and the PULMONARY ARTERY arises from the LEFT VENTRICLE. Consequently, the pulmonary and the systemic circulations are parallel and not sequential, so that the venous return from the peripheral circulation is re-circulated by the right ventricle via aorta to the systemic circulation without being oxygenated in the lungs. This is a potentially lethal form of heart disease in newborns and infants.
Categories Cardiovascular disease | Congenital abnormality
