Double outlet right ventricle

Double outlet right ventricle: Introduction

Double outlet right ventricle: A very rare birth defect where the aorta and the pulmonary artery both exit from the right ventricle and thus blood is unable to be pumped to the lungs. However, a hole connects the two ventricles and ultimately allows some blood flow to the lungs. The severity of symptoms varies depending on the location of the connecting hole in the heart and the exact location of the two arteries with respect to the heart. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Double outlet right ventricle is available below.
