Tweet (See Normal Heart Image for comparison) Click image to see download options from Flickr:  Aberrant Right Subclavian Artery [abherrant=unusual, sub=under, clavical=collar bone, artery=blood vessel] the right subclavian artery (which supplies blood to the right arm) branches off the Aorta instead of branching off the right-branch of the aorta (the brachiocephalic trunk.) Atrial Septal Defects (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 (atria). Pulmonary Stenosis [pulmonary=having…
