Heart defect: Tetralogy of Fallot [enlarged aorta, pulmonary stenosis, large ventricular septal defect (VSD), right ventricle hypertrophy], complete atrioventricular canal defect (CAVC), pulmonary atresia, patent ductus arteriosusRead More
Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF):
pulmonary stenosis [pa=pulmonary atresia]
VSD=ventricular septal defect
hypertrophy (right ventricle)
RAA=right aortic arch
Heart defect: Total Anomalous Pulmonary Vein Return, TAPVR, double outlet right ventricle, dorv, pulmonary atresia, patent ductus arteriosus, PDARead More
Heart defect: Hypoplastic left heart syndrome, HLHS, with double outlet right ventricle, DORV, transposition of the great arteries, TGA, mitral stenosis, pulmonary atresia, pa, heterotaxy, complete heart blockRead More
Heart defect: levo-Transposition of the great arteries (l-TGA) with pulmonary atresia (pa) and a very large ventricular septal defect (VSD)Read More
In a normal heart, the RV (right ventricle) and RA (right atrium) are on the patient’s right side. The LV (left ventricle) and LA (left atrium) are on the patient’s left side.
In this heart, Dextrocardia causes the whole heart to flip so the RA is on the patient’s left side and the LA is on the patient’s right side.
Also, the l-TGA causes just the ventricles to swap places. So, the LV is on the patient’s left side again and the RV is on the patient’s right side again.Read More
