In developing countries, issues like late presentation and lack of neonatal care infrastructure are problems faced on a daily basis. Certainly, that interferes with surgical results.
It is also known that anatomical aspects impose morbidity for a child with TGA that requires an operation.
Coronary artery anomalies are on the top of the list of anatomical abnormalities and can affect early and late results[1]. Considering all of the coronary artery anomalies described, one of the most frightenin...
