Conotruncal malformations accompanying PLSVC-2. a–d Axial (a), sagittal-oblique reformatted (c), and 3D VRT (b, d) CT images show the accompanying D-TGA in a patient with PLSVC (red arrows). The aorta (Ao) is located to the anterior and right of the pulmonary truncus (PA) (a, b). Please note the parallel course of the aorta and pulmonary truncus without “crossing over” (c, d). e–h Axial (e, h) and 3D VRT (f, g) CT images depict the accompanying L-TGA anomaly in a patient with PLSVC (red arrows). The aorta (Ao) is located to the left and anterior of the pulmonary truncus (PA) (eg). The infundibular muscle around the aorta (blue arrow) indicates the right ventricular origin (e). The left-sided ventricle has the tricuspid valve (yellow arrows), which is the closer atrioventricular valve to the ventricular apex and indicates the right ventricular configuration (h)
