Transposition of the Great Arteries
In children with transposition of the great arteries (TGA), the normal pattern of flow through the heart does not exist, so the body doesn't get enough oxygenated (red) blood. TGA may be diagnosed before birth, with fetal echocardiogram (ultrasound), or sometimes when an infant is a few hours or days old.
