Abstract

A case of patient with diagnosed, well tolerated corrected congenital transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) and
congenital third-degree atrioventricular block is presented. At the age of 26 he had Morgagni-Stokes-Adams attack
associated with cranial trauma, next year he developed cerebral embolism as a complication of newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation.
