As long-term outcomes of congenital heart diseases improve, the probability of adult patients presenting for heart transplantation for late failure of congenitally corrected heart disease also increases. In patients with dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) who were initially treated in the era of Mustard or Senning procedures and before Jatene procedure was introduced, progressive systemic right ventricular failure represents a problem in the very long-term follow-up. We report a rare case of heart transplantation as a third operation 36 years after Mustard procedure in a patient with d-TGA experiencing late failure of the systemic right ventricle.
