The most common types of septal defects are atrial septal defect, an opening between the two upper heart chambers (atria), and ventricular septal defect, an opening between the two lower heart chambers (ventricles).
Among the consequences of COA is an enlargement of the left ventricle (ventricular hypertrophy) in response to increased back-pressure of the blood and the demand for more blood by the lower body.
Atrial septal defects can occur alone or in combination with other congenital heart disorders, such as ventricular septal defect.Advertisement
Atrial and ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart defects.
Atrial septal defects account for 4-10 percent of all cases of congenital cardiovascular defects in the United States; ventricular septal defects account for about 14-16 percent.
Eisenmenger's complex is a ventricular septal defect coupled with pulmonary high blood pressure, an enlarged right ventricle, and sometimes an aorta that is not positioned correctly.
The major defects are a large hole (ventricular septal defect) between the ventricles, which allows oxygen-poor blood to mix with oxygen-rich blood, and narrowing at or beneath the pulmonary valve.
The other defects are an overly muscular right ventricle and an aorta that lies over the ventricular septal defect.Advertisement
An ICD is a device used primarily to treat ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, two life-threatening heart rhythms.
Pulmonary artery banding, narrowing the pulmonary artery with a band to reduce blood flow and pressure in the lungs, is used for ventricular septal defect, atrioventricular canal defect, and tricuspid atresia.
An echo is used in pediatric patients diagnosed with hypertension to determine the extent of left ventricular hypertrophy, a condition in which the heart's main pumping vessel is enlarged.
Various types of congenital heart disease, including ventricular septal defect (VSD), atrial septic defect (ASD), or PDA (patent ductus arteriosus), may be present.
Ventricular septal defect-An opening between the right and left ventricles of the heart.Advertisement
During surgery, the pulmonary valve is widened, the ventricular septal defect is closed, and any interim correction is removed.
Defibrillation-A procedure to stop the type of irregular heart beat called ventricular fibrillation, usually by using electric shock.
Ventricular fibrillation-An arrhythmia characterized by a very rapid, uncoordinated, ineffective series of contractions throughout the lower chambers of the heart.
A number of different heart defects are common in Down syndrome, including abnormal openings (holes) in the walls that separate the heart's chambers (atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect).
Some ventricular arrhythmias can be cured using catheter ablation.Advertisement
During intracardiac and/or coronary arteriography, ventricular arrhythmias may infrequently occur.
Sleep-disordered breathing can result in hypoxia, right ventricular strain, and, finally, cardiopulmonary failure.
The most common form of sudden cardiac arrest is due to ventricular fibrillation - a rapid, chaotic, lethal rhythm of the heart.
