The average circumference of the ventriculoarterial junction was measured as 9.
The diagnosis was confirmed by echocardiography that revealed ventriculoarterial discordance (transposition of the great arteries), severe dilatation and hypokinesis of the systemic (anatomic right) ventricle, normal function of the pulmonary (anatomic left) ventricle, a normally functioning intraatrial baffle, mild regurgitation of both atrioventricular valves, a right atrial mean pressure of approximately 10 mm Hg, and a pulmonary arterial systolic pressure of approximately 30 mm Hg.
The simplest method is to describe cardiac position, visceroatrial situs, and ventriculoarterial position.
