Abstract: Pulmonary outflow tract obstruction (POTO) reduces systemic atrioventricular valve (SAVV) regurgitation severity in congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA). Therefore, pulmonary artery banding is proposed as a palliative intervention. We aimed to investigate the effect of native or surgically induced POTO on event-free survival, defined as the composite of all-cause mortality, heart transplantation, or congestive heart failure (CHF).
