Definitions of Partial atrioventricular canal:
Partial atrioventricular canal is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH). This means that Partial atrioventricular canal, or a subtype of Partial atrioventricular canal,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners,
currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000.
They list Partial atrioventricular canal as a "rare disease".
