Objective: In this study, we presented the clinical characteristics of
the patients we performed arterial switch operation between 2018-2020 in
our clinic and our experience in this regard. Methods: Arterial switch
operations were performed in 29 patients in total with 13 simple and 16
complex transposition of the great arteries (TGA) diagnoses in two
years. Ten patients in the simple TGA group were operated within the
first 14 days after birth, and the other three patients were operated at
14-60 days of age. Eleven patients from the complex TGA group were
operated within the first 14 days, and five patients within 14-60 days.
Preoperative, operative process and postoperative short and long term
results were evaluated in both groups. Our study was approved by the
