Introduction: The transposition of great arteries (TGA) is one of the main causes of neonatal or early infancy open heart surgeries in pediatric cardiology. The ASO is preferred over the Atrial switch when suitable as the left ventricle remains the systemic ventricle and there are fewer incidences of postoperative arrhythmias. Method: It’s a retrospective review of the early surgical outcomes of arterial switch operation performed at the department of pediatric cardiology at Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central, Mumbai from August 2014 to August 2017. Results: During the specified period, a total of 22 children were admitted to the hospital for ASO for TGA. The average age of the patient was 78 days. The mean weight of the children was 3.35 kg and height was 52.5 cm. Discussion: The early outcome of arterial switch operation at our center is as good as the other well-established centers. The surgical outcome of ASO remained consistent over the last two and a half year. The policy of our institution is to optimize the patients prior to the surgery, may need BAS if the children are of TGA with intact ventricular septum with restricted atrial level shunt group. Conclusion: The review shows the early results of postoperative cases of arterial switch operation from a new center are as encouraging as from the other high volume centers.
