Overview

The prevalence of TPA is approximately 47 per 100,000 individuals worldwide. TGA accounts for 5-7 percent of all congenital heart disease and 20 percent of cyanotic heart disease.

Epidemiology

Incidence

  • Transposition of the great arteries TGA is one of the commonest cyanotic congenital heart defects present in the first 24 hours of life.[1]
  • The overall annual incidence of TGA is 20-30 per 100,000 live births.
  • TGA represents 5-7% of all congenital heart disease and 20% of cyanotic disease.

Demographics

Gender

  • Boys outnumber girls with an approximate ratio of 2:1.

Race

  • There is no racial predilection to transposition of great vessels.
