Corrected transposition of great arteries. Definition

Medical Definition: corrected transposition of great arteries

Congenital heart disease that is characterized by transposition of the great vessels associated with ventricular inversion. Thus, pulmonary venous blood reaches the left atrium, passes through the tricuspid morphologically right ventricle and then to the aorta. For its part, the systemic venous blood passes through the right atrial and tricuspid valve into the morphologically left ventricle and the pulmonary artery. Although, if no other abnormalities, hemodynamics can be normal, it is not uncommon initially the presence of associated defects such as ventricular septal defect, pulmonary stenosis or type Ebstein malformation of the left atrioventricular valve (tricuspid).
