Tweet(See Normal Heart Image for comparison) Click image to see download options from Flickr: Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) [septum=wall between the chambers of the heart, atriums=top chambers of the heart] – holes in the inner walls of the heart allowing extra blood flow between the two upper chambers of the heart (atriums). Dextrocardia [dextro=on the right side]-the heart is reversed and in the right side of the chest (instead of the left). The lower tip of the heart also points to the right (instead of the left). Hypoplastic Right Ventricle (hypoplastic) [hypo=under, plasia=formation or development,…

HLHS ii

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS): The left side of the heart is underdeveloped, particularly, the left ventricle the aorta, and the valves controlling the bloodflow of the left ventrical (mitral valve, aortic valve.) There two atrial septal defects, two ventricular septal defects and a patent ductus arteriosus.

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS)

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS): the left side of the heart is underdeveloped–including the left ventricle, the aorta (which carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the body), and the valves controling the bloodflow of the left ventrical (mitral valve, aortic valve). Excess pressure in the heart leads to an atrial septal defect and a patent ductus arteriosus.
