TGA / transposition the Great Arteries is the second heart disorder most commonly found in newborns. This disease is classified as a congenital disorder, which is a congenital abnormality when the baby is still in the womb.
Normally, oxygen-rich blood is supplied by the aorta from the left ventricle. Unfortunately in this disorder, the aorta does not emerge from the left ventricle (atrioventricular malposition) so that the blood flowed throughout the body contains less oxygen. Therefore, this disorder will cause cyanotic / bluish symptoms in some parts of the body during the early life (when a new baby is born).
From the results of your child's echocardiography, it gives a pretty good impression in terms of the anatomy of the heart and the space between the heart, movement / contractility of the heart within normal limits, the pressure function of the left ventricle within normal limits.
You do not need to worry, babies / children with TGA after surgery generally can experience normal growth and development like a child in general until he is an adult. However, children with a history of TGA must remain routinely controlled by a pediatric cardiologist for periodic evaluations regarding their heart condition.
I suggest you to continue to carry out control and examination to the pediatric cardiologist related to the results of the echocardiography examination to get more relevant and complete information. In addition, you can also find out the condition and health progress of your child with a direct examination conducted by a doctor. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
