In brief: Dr. Jatene

Dr. Jatene's operation is used to correct d transposition whenever possible given the proper anatomy present.
Coronary buttons are translocated to the neoaorta, the aorta is anastomosed to the left ventricular ventriculoarterial valve, the le compte maneuver is done, the main pulmonary artery is anastomosed to the right ventriculo arterial valve trunk. That's it, the arterial switch procedure.
