Congential Heart Disease Conditions and Abnormalities

Conditions Associated with Congenital Heart Disease

  • Genetic syndromes including
    • Down
    • Marfan
    • Turner
    • Noonan
    • DiGeorge
    • Williams
  • Pregnancy
  • Pulmonary hypertension/Eisenmenger syndrome
  • Advanced heart failure
  • Atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and other arrhythmia
  • Need for diagnostic and interventional catheterization, electrophysiology study and catheter ablation, cardiac implantable electronic device therapy, surgical correction, and transplant

Types of Congential Heart Abnormalities

Simple Lesions

  • Atrial septal defect
  • Ventricular septal defect
  • Isolated congenital valvular disease, including bicuspid aortic valve
  • Patent ductus arteriosus

Moderate Complexity

  • Atrioventricular septal defect
  • Ebstein anomaly of the tricuspid valve
  • Coarctation of the aorta and other aortopathy-related conditions
  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Right and left ventricular outflow tract obstructions
  • Anomalous coronary arteries
  • Anomalous pulmonary venous connection

Severe Complexity

  • D-transposition of the great arteries
  • L-transposition (congenitally corrected) transposition of the great arteries
  • Truncus arteriosus and interrupted aortic arch
  • Single ventricle (pulmonary atresia, tricuspid atresia, mitral atresia, hypoplastic left heart, doublet outlet right ventricle, double inlet left ventricle)
  • Heteroxy syndrome with asplenia or polysplenia
  • Unrepaired cyanotic lesions
