Overview

Treatment for conditions that include dextrocardia depends on whether the infant has other heart or physical problems in addition to dextrocardia. If heart defects are present with dextrocardia, the baby will most likely need surgery.

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

CABG can be performed in the patient with dextrocardia. A right internal mammary artery may be used as a conduit to the left anterior descending artery.[1] [2] [3]
