Invited Commentary to one-stage repair of transposition complex and
interrupted aortic arch in children.
The management of patients with transposition complex in combination
with an interrupted aortic arch (IAA) presents a technical challenge to
the surgeon to decide which is the best approach to correct both
defects. This is a rare disorder and with significant variation in
anatomic arrangements deciding on the ideal surgical repair. Over time a
single-stage approach to repair has become standard.
