Epidemiology and Demographics

Incidence

  • Transposition of the great arteries TGA is one of the commonest cyanotic congenital heart defects present in the first 24 hours of life.
  • An incidence at birth of 20-30 in 100000 live births
  • TGA represents 5-7% of all CHD.
  • Almost 20 percent of all cyanotic CHD defects
  • TGA is more common in infants of diabetic mothers.

Gender

  • Boys outnumber girls with an approximate ratio of 2:1.
  • Without treatment, 30% of infants die within the first week of life, 50% will die in the first month, 70% will die in the first 6 months and 90% of infants will die before the end of the first year.
