Complete transposition of great arteries (TGA) is a common and nearly fatal cyanotic congenital cardiac malformation if not treated in time. Without any intervention, nearly 50% succumb in neonatal period and 90% before their first birthday. Advancements in diagnostic and surgical modalities have led to significant improvement in the survival rate of these children. This article discusses comprehensive echocardiographic evaluation in TGA and its variants before and after surgical correction.
