ⓘ Dextro-Transposition of the great arteries
dextro-Transposition of the great arteries, is a birth defect in the large arteries of the heart. The primary arteries are transposed.
This is called a cyanotic congenital heart defect CHD because the newborn baby turns blue from lack of oxygen.
In segmental analysis, this condition is described as ventriculoarterial discordance with atrioventricular compliance, or just ventriculoarterial discordance.
d-TGA is often referred to simply as transposition of the great arteries TGA, however, TGA is a more General term which may also refer to levo-transposition of the great arteries l-TGA.
Another term often used to refer to d-TGA and L-TGA is transposition of the great vessels TGV, although this term can have a broader meaning than TGA.
Even in the womb, a baby With D-TGA experiences no symptoms as the lungs will not be used until after birth, and oxygen provided by the mother through the placenta and umbilical cord, in order for the red blood to bypass the lungs in utero, the fetal heart has two shunts that begin to close when the newborn begins to breathe, it is a patent foramen ovale and the ductus arteriosus. The foramen ovale is a hole in the interatrial septum that allows blood from the right atrium enters the left atrium, after birth, the left atrium fills with blood returning from the lungs and the foramen ovale closes. The ductus arteriosus is a small artery-like structure that allows blood to flow from the trunk of the pulmonary artery into the aorta, after childbirth, the blood in the pulmonary artery enters the lungs and the ductus arteriosus closes. Sometimes these shunts fail to close after birth, these defects called patent foramen ovale and patent ductus arteriosus, and may occur independently or in combination with each other or With D-TGA or other cardiac and / or General defects.
