Abstract

Traditionally transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is suggested by bifurcation of the great vessel arising from the posterior ventricle and the parallel course of the great vessels as they leave the heart. These findings may be difficult to demonstrate, requiring additional fetal echocardiographic features to indicate TGA. In this study, we investigated a new marker of TGA, namely rightward convexity of the great vessel arising from the anterior ventricle.
