|Abstract:||Topsy-turvy heart is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly characterized by a 90 degrees rotation of the heart along its long axis. The great vessels originate posteroinferiorly, and the arch vessels are elongated and join the aorta well below the carina. It is usually associated with aortic arch and tracheobronchial anomalies. Cardiopulmonary bypass is challenging in these patients because of the abnormal position of the great vessels. We describe the surgical management of aortopulmonary window in a topsy-turvy heart in a 14-day-old girl. (C) 2016 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons|
