The arterial switch operation (ASO) is the standard surgical technique for transposition of the great arteries. Although there have been significant improvements in long-term outcomes in patients undergoing the ASO when compared to the atrial switch procedure (Mustard or Senning), early and mid-term morbidity and mortality due to coronary complications have been identified. We describe percutaneous coronary artery angioplasty in a 9-week-old infant on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation status post ASO with optimal outcomes.
