Overview

The TGA was first described in 1797 by Matthew Baillie as a "singular malformation". The word transposition was coined by Farre in 1814.

Historical Perspective

  • The TGA was first described in 1797 by Matthew Baillie as a "singular malformation"
  • In 1814 Farre described it as transposition.
  • No treatment was available until the middle of the 20th century.
  • In the 1950s, surgical atrial septectomy was developed followed by balloon atrial septostomy in the 1960s. These surgical therapies were not curative, but were palliative. They were later followed by physiological procedures.
  • Today, the survival rate for infants with TGA is greater than 90%.


1797 Baillie First morphological description of TGA
1814 Farre First used the term TGA
1948 Hanlon and Blalock Artirial septectomy
1953 Lilehei and Varco Partial venous switch
1955 Thomas Baffes Baffes operation
