Transposition of great arteries is regarded as a congenital birth defect in which the two main vessels that carry blood from the heart are transposed. The transposition of great arteries paves way for a situation where the blood with a low amount of oxygen courses through right atrium and right ventricle and is pumped out to aorta and the body, while the blood rich in oxygen returns from the lungs and courses through the left atrium and ventricle and is then sent back to the lungs through the pulmonary artery.
Without an adequate supply of oxygen-rich blood, the body can't function properly and the child faces serious complications or death without treatment.
Several factors that may increase the risk of this disease are:

The medicine prostaglandin will help leave the ductus arteriosus exposed, which will give way to the mixing of both oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor blood.
This procedure is one of the most often used methods. In this procedure, the aorta is positioned towards the right ventricle, and the pulmonary artery towards the left ventricle. All the coronary arteries are also positioned from the aorta so that they carry oxygen rich blood to the heart. All other defects that are present shall also be closed.
In this test, a tunnel is created between the two atria, forcing the oxygen rich blood towards the aorta and right ventricle. Thereafter, the right ventricle shall pump blood to the whole body rather than just the lungs. This procedure is only practised, if there are many complications.
The disease is often detected at the time of birth or the first week of the life of the baby. You should seek immediate medical help, in case you start to notice the signs such as discolouration of the baby’s skin, extreme breathlessness, rapid breathing, or finger clubbing.
