ABSTRACT
A six-week-old infant presented in extremis and was diagnosed with dextro-transposition of the great arteries, intact ventricular septum, features of left ventricular deconditioning, and abnormal coronary arteries. Treatment with prostaglandin E1 and balloon atrial septostomy was insufficient, necessitating extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 was detected. The arterial switch operation was delayed by eight days because of COVID-19. Although stable on ECMO, the infant was treated with remdesivir. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was not required postoperatively with chest closure on day 2 and extubation on day 5.
