Lutembacher syndrome is characterized by a congenital ostium secundum atrial septal defect
and an acquired mitral valve stenosis.
HYDERABAD -- Atrial Septal Defect
(ASD), a congenital child heart disorder, is an opening in the atrial septum and the opening in the atrial septum allows the blood from either side to mix, decreasing the efficiency of the heart's function.
Crochetage" (notch) on R wave in inferior limb leads: a new independent electrocardiographic sign of atrial septal defect
Large ventricular septal defect
, overriding aorta, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction and right ventricular hypertrophy are typical features of TOF2-4.
Objective: To review the surgical outcome of doubly committed subarterial (DCSA) ventricular septal defect
Exposure to clindamycin and doxycycline during the first trimester may be associated with an increased risk of organ-specific malformations such as ventricular/atrial septal defect
, new research suggests.
Structural defects are seen in 75% of the cases and include both atrial and ventricular septal defect
In addition, Zahid had a large defect in the wall separating the right and left atria called atrial septal defect
with abnormal pulmonary venous drainage.
Background: Currently, transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defect
(pmVSD) is a widely accepted therapeutic modality.
Three years before admission the patient underwent surgical repair of atrial septal defect
(ASD) by pericardial patch closure of ASD.
Cardiovascular malformations were diagnostically categorized in the following nine subtypes: ventricular septal defect
, atrial septal defect
, patent ductus arteriosus, coarctation of aorta, pulmonary valve stenosis, tetralogy of Fallot, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, transposition of conducting arteries, and other uncommon subtypes such as ectopia cordis, ventricular double outlets, tricuspid atresia, inborn aortic arch anomalies, and others.
Further interrogation confirmed blood flow between the LV and the RA, consistent with an acquired Gerbode-type ventricular septal defect
(VSD), with flow present in both systole and diastole.
