Abstract

Systemic ventricular failure is a recognised late consequence of the atrial switch procedure for transposition of the great arteries. There is a significant population status post atrial switch. We report one such patient with a failing Mustard procedure who was treated by surgical implantation of a Heartware HVAD rotary blood pump into the systemic ventricle.
