Abstract

Primary care cardiology, also known as ambulatory or outpatient cardiology, for the longitudinal management of patients with common arterial trunk or with transposition of the great arteries is both poorly described and has limited evidence to justify its basis. This article discusses some of the various complications that these patients can develop, reviews the medical literature, and describes a framework for care of these complex patients from infancy to transition to adult congenital cardiac specialist care.
