122 – DORV, TGA, TAPVR, heterotaxy

Tweet (See Normal Heart Image for comparison) Click image to see download options from Flickr: supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Vein Return (TAPVR) [supra=above, cardiac=of the heart, anomalous=not normal, pulmonary=having to do with the lungs, vein=blood vessel, return=come back] a structural defect where the pulmonary veins (which normally carry oxygen-rich blood from the lungs back to the left atrium of the heart) do not connect to the left atrium at all. Instead, the pulmonary veins connect to the innominate Vein (which brings oxygen-depleted blood from the head back to the superior vena cava and…

115 – DILV, HRHS, TGA, ps

Tweet (See Normal Heart Image for comparison) Click image to see download options from Flickr: (Click to see this heart AFTER Fontan) 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). Double Inlet Left Ventricle (DILV) [intlet=passage for entrance, ventricles=lower chambers of the heart] –  both valves  (tricuspid & mitral) controlling blood flow out of the upper chambers of the heart lead into…
