Heart defect: Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA)
Heart defect: Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)
Heart defect: Double Outlet Right Ventricle, DORV, atrial, ventricular, septal defect, bicuspid, aortic valve
Heart defect: shones with critical coartation of the aorta, PDA, PFO, bicusipd, valve stenosis (aortic, mitral), Patent ductus arteriosus, patent foramen ovale
Heart defect: Total anomalous pulmonary vein return (TAPVR) with atrial septal defect (ASD)
Heart Defect: hypoplastic right ventricle, large ventricular septal defect, straddling tricuspid valve, HRV, VSD
Heart Defect: Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AVSD) – A combination of defects in the heart that affects both the septum (wall between the chambers of the heart) and the valves between the upper and lower chambers of the heart.
CHD image: double inlet left ventricle, dilv, congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, hypoplastic right heart syndrome, very large ventricular septal defect or VSD
1 in 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect. There are many types of CHDs. Some of these defects are more life-threatening than others.
There’s a pathway in the heart that is open in the fetus but closes 4-10 days after birth–the PDA. A pulse oximeter test detects the percent of oxygen passing through the blood stream. It can detect a problem in the heart even before the PDA closes.
