Are you an adult who was born with the congenital heart defect called dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA)? If so, do not miss this webinar. Are you aware that in d-TGA, the two main arteries carrying blood out of the heart—the aorta and the pulmonary artery—do not develop correctly? They are switched in position or “transposed.” Register today and learn about the anatomy of d-TGA, the types of surgical repairs, long-term monitoring, and how to lead a productive and full life.
