Tricuspid valve regurgitation, which is a main complication of corrected transposition of the great arteries (C-TGA), greatly influences prognosis like atrioventricular block, but there are many differing openions concerning the treatment of this condition childhood. In 2 cases of C-TGA (S.L.L.) without other cardiac anomalies, we performed tricuspid valve replacement for severe valve dysfunction.
