Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect

Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect: Introduction

Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect: A congenital heart defect where the pulmonary artery is closed off so that blood is unable to flow out to the lungs via the pulmonary artery. An abnormal opening between the two sides of the heart also allow blood to flow between the two heart chambers. The severity of symptoms depends on the degree of abnormality. Symptoms may be evident at birth or later. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect is available below.
