Arterial Switch Operation (ASO)

Volume by Year

The arterial switch operation is offered to patients with simple transposition of the great arteries, complex transposition of the great arteries and Taussig-Bing anomaly. Historically, this operation has not been viewed as a viable treatment option for some children due to their size, complex coronary anatomy and associated cardiac malformations. Our outcomes have demonstrated that these characteristics are not associated with increased operative risk. Our hospital survival rate is 100%.
