Overview

An abnormal pulse oximetry findings with a discrepancy between the upper and lower extremities is a consistent finding with transposition of great vessels. D-TGA is difficult to detect on fetal ultrasound due to the absence of differences in ventricle size.

Laboratory Findings

  • An abnormal pulse oximetry findings with a discrepancy between the upper and lower extremities is a consistent finding with transposition of great vessels.
  • D-TGA is difficult to detect on fetal ultrasound due to the absence of differences in ventricle size.[1]
