Fetal Heart

  • AV Canal

    An AV Canal diagnosis typically consists of two different abnormalities occurring at the same time. Watch this video to learn more about AV Canal diagnosis.

  • Coarctation of the Aorta

    Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital heart defect. It is a narrowing in the aorta, which is the large blood vessel that delivers blood from the heart to the rest of the body.

  • Ebstein Anomoly

    Ebstein Anomaly is a defect of the tricuspid valve, which separates the right atrium from the right ventricle. The valve is displaced into the right ventricle. As a result, the septal leaflet is tied and the anterior leaflet is enlarged. Watch this video to learn more.

  • HLHS

    Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a congenital heart defect in which the left side of the heart is small, or hypoplastic. The left ventricle, mitral valve, aortic valve and aorta are all under developed, and the left side of the heart is unable to send enough blood to the body. 

  • Interupted Aortic Arch

    The aorta is the main blood vessel that carries oxygen-rich blood to the body. If a patient is diagnosed with interrupted aortic arch, the first part of the aorta does not connect to the aorta in the lower part of the body. Watch this video to learn more.

  • TAPVR

    Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR) is a congenital defect in which the pulmonary veins do not connect normally to the left atrium. Normally, the pulmonary veins return oxygen-rich blood to the left atrium. Watch this video to learn more.

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a congenital heart defect. TOF is described as 4 abnormalities that occur together. One is that there is a large hole in the wall of muscle (septum) that divides the 2 bottom pump-ing chambers (ventricles) of the heart. 

  • Transposition

    Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is a congenital heart defect in which the large blood vessels which carry blood from the heart to the lungs (pulmonary arteries) and body (aorta) are coming off the wrong pumping chambers (ventricles).

  • Truncus Arteriosus

    Truncus Arteriosus is a common trunk that includes both the pulmonary artery and aorta. In this condition, the blood pressure in the lungs drops, resulting in too much blood going to the lungs and causing congestive heart failure. Watch this video to learn more.
