Case Report on Accidently Diagnosed Congenitally Corrected Transposition of Great Arteries (CCTGA) in a 65 Year Old Male

Dr. Riya Patel


Abstract: Congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries (CCTGA) is a very rare heart defect in which the heart’s lower half is reversed. It is also called L-TGA. About 0.5 %–1 % of all babies born with heart defects have CCTGA. Here we present a case of a 65 year old male with CCTGA with chronic cough and breathlessness as the only symptoms. Echocardiography confirmed the diagnosis with intact inter ventricular septum, dilated right ventricle (systemic), mild tricuspid regurgitation, mild right ventricle dysfunction, good left ventricle contractility, trivial aortic regurgitation.
