Abstract

Occult coronary artery obstruction can be a late source of morbidity and mortality following the arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries. We describe a case of undiagnosed left coronary ostial obstruction in a teenager which may have contributed to perioperative ventricular dysfunction and subsequent mortality following a reoperation many years after arterial switch.
