In patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, the main concern has been the long-term performance of the morphologic right ventricle in association with tricuspid valve regurgitation when it remains as the systemic ventricle. Deterioration in ventricular function can occur slowly over many years, even without associated cardiac anomalies or previous surgical interventions. This review summarizes the authors’ experience and provides a thorough review of the literature addressing the management of the failing systemic right ventricle as well as the tricuspid valve regurgitation with congenitally corrected transposition. This includes different surgical options, the authors’ preferred management algorithm, and the late outcome.
