From WP:RfD:

Suggestion - The article needs a brief description of the embryology involved in transposition of the great vessels - i.e. failure of the spiral septum to spiral. This would give the article more content and make it less like a list of Congenital Heart Defects - any thoughts, am happy to write if required. M

putting any common embriology info here would be great (I don't know alot about this specific area, so forgive if I say things that don't apply), I wasn't sure what else could fill this article out without making it too specific (ie, info belonging on one of the articles for a more specific arrangement of the great arteries), please do write up anything you notice that could go here! If you prefer not to write it, you can leave me the info I'll need and I can write it up, then you could check to make sure I've used it in the proper context...or whatever...it would be great to get some expansion on this article. bcatt 12:09, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Transposition of the great vesselsTransposition of the Great Vessels: Corrected capitalization, doing a search with incorrect capitalization would return the second page without the aid of a redirect. bcatt 11:44, Jun 17, 2005 (UTC)
    • I'm inclined to keep this to prevent creation of a duplicate article, when someone links to Transposition of the great vessels, and discovers it's a red link. Opinions? Noel (talk) 16:07, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
      • You're right, actually...I though that an improperly capitalized search would return the same result, but I see that it won't...I will remove the rfd tag bcatt June 28, 2005 08:44 (UTC)

Terminology section[edit]

I believe that there is a mistake in the terminology section, with the statement 'The term "TGV" is often used as a more specific reference to transposition of the great arteries (TGA); however, TGA only relates to the aorta and the pulmonary artery, whereas TGV is a broader term which can relate to these vessels as well as the SVC, IVC, and pulmonary veins.'

I believe that it should be written as 'The term "TGV" is often used as a LESS specific reference to transposition of the great arteries (TGA); however, TGA only relates to the aorta and the pulmonary artery, whereas TGV is a broader term which can relate to these vessels as well as the SVC, IVC, and pulmonary veins.'

TGV vs. TGA[edit]

The term "transposition of the great arteries" is linked back to this same article via a redirect. Either there should be no redirect (two separate articles), or the link should be removed: articles should not link to themselves. Thomas.Hedden (talk) 14:49, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
