- Myocardial innervation pattern on 123I-mlBG SPECT. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]To describe the myocardial reinnervation pattern of a cohort of patients with TGA long after ASO using cardiac nuclear imaging.
- Myocardial perfusion defects on cardiac nuclear imaging. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]To identify myocardial perfusion defects using cardiac nuclear imaging.
- Myocardial innervation perfusion mismatch defects on cardiac nuclear imaging. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]To identify myocardial innervations/perfusion mismatch using cardiac nuclear imaging.
- Treadmill exercise test. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
To determine exercise capacity (METs and double product) and chronotropic response (Maximal heart rate and heart rate increase pattern). Correlate with myocardial reinnervation pattern and sinus node reinnervation.
To determine exercise induced ischeamic ST segment changes. Correlate with myocardial perfusion defects and innervation-perfusion mismatch.
- 24 hours ECG Holter monitoring . [ Time Frame: 1 day ]To determine sinus node innervation through heart rate variability (HRV) which will be assessed by time domain variables (the standard deviation of normal RR intervals (SDNN) and the square root of the mean of the squared differences between adjacent normal RR intervals (r-MSSD)) and frequency domain variables (variance of all R-R intervals - total power (TP); power in the very low frequency range - very low frequency (VLF, 0.003-0.04 Hz); power in the low frequency range-low frequency (LF, 0.04-0.15Hz); low frequency power in normalized units-normalized low frequency; power in the high frequency range-high frequency (HF, 0.15-0.40 Hz); and high frequency power in normalized units-normalized high frequency and the ratio of low frequency to high frequency (LF/HF)).
