IPCCC Term CRISSCROSS HEART (TWISTED ATRIOVENTRICULAR CONNECTIONS)
IPCCC Code 02.03.03
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiac malformation in which the vectors of the atrioventricular inflow tracts are approximately orthogonal (perpendicular) to each other.
This heart is viewed in anatomic position and is sectioned in a long axis plane demonstrating the features of a crisscross heart (twisted atrioventricular connections). In this heart, the vectors of the atrioventricular inflow tracts are approximately orthogonal or perpendicular to each other. The right atrioventricular connection is marked with the red arrow and the left with the yellow arrow. This heart has concordant atrioventricular connections and discordant ventriculo-arterial connections.
