Abstract

We describe a 63-year-old male who appears to have undergone an early form of the arterial switch operation for D-transposition of the great arteries performed in the mid-1960s. We review the clinical and imaging data that support our conclusion. He had a diagnostic cardiac catheterization which demonstrated severe pulmonary hypertension responsive to epoprostenol and oxygen. Our case may represent one example of the experimental surgical work done prior to Dr. Adibe Jatene’s description of the first successful arterial switch performed in 1975.
