Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a rare form of congenital heart diseases, present with or without associated anomalies. It is a complex congenital heart disease with both atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance. Such patients tend to develop systemic ventricular dysfuction with the stress of surgery. Patients with CCTGA are usually diagnosed at early stages of life due to associated anomalies, but they may even remain asymptomatic till later decades of their life. Literature search revealed very few reported cases of anaesthetic management of such high risk cases for non cardiac
surgery. These patients have the tendency to develop cardiac dysrhythmias and left ventricular failure during intraoperative and postoperative period.We report anaesthetic management of a case of a 24 years old male with the congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries(CCTGA) who was operated for fracture left distal radius and ulna and right sided galeazzi fracture.
