Congenitally corrected TGA- A case diagnosed incidentally
Keywords:Congenital, heart, bradycardia
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a rare congenital heart defect associated with multiple cardiac morphological abnormalities and conduction defects. Data from the Baltimore-Washington Infant Study supported the fact that congenitally corrected transposition is a rare disorder (1). As many as 40 infants per 100,000 live births are affected by congenitally corrected transposition of the great vessels; this is less than 1% of all congenital heart defects. The literature reports fewer than 1000 cases, however, the true prevalence of the malformation is not known. We report a case of a 25 year old female diagnosed incidentally post delivery with CCTGA.
