The most common cyanotic congenital heart defect that presents in the first month after birth is transposition of the great arteries (TGA). There are two major forms of TGA -- dextro-TGA (d-TGA) and levo-TGA (l-TGA) or congenitally corrected TGA (also known as cc-TGA). Because cc-TGA is rarer than d-TGA, it's not often spoken about. On this show we'll have two adult survivors of cc-TGA talk about what it's like living with cc-TGA, how it's affected their lives and what advice they have for parents of cc-TGA and for adult survivors of cc-TGA.
