Two-dimensional echocardiography has limitations in evaluating right ventricle performance.
If the patients with nasal polyposis left untreated, it could affect firstly right ventricle functions and then it could cause cardiovascular complications.
A long-standing ASD increases pulmonary vascular perfusion, and causes diastolic overload of the right ventricle. Children with ASD typically have normal pulmonary vascular resistance, and generally endure increased pulmonary blood flow which may exceed twice the systemic blood flow.
Spiral twisting of the growing tissue and a shift of the conal base to the middle causes the outflow tracts to align with the pulmonary artery over the right ventricle and with the aorta over the left ventricle (see Figure 11).
Some blood that has returned from the lungs and has been pumped into the left ventricle flows to the right ventricle through the hole instead of being pumped into the aorta.
