IPCCC Term RIGHT-SIDED JUXTAPOSITION OF ATRIAL APPENDAGES
IPCCC Code 05.02.04
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiac malformation in which the left atrial appendage extends from the left atrium, behind the great arteries, to lie adjacent to the right atrial appendage.
This anterior anatomic view demonstrates juxtaposition of the atrial appendages with the left atrial appendage extending from the left atrium, posterior to the arterial pedicle, to lie adjacent to the right atrial appendage and to the right side of the great arteries. This is commonly associated with hypoplasia or atresia of the mitral valve, hypoplasia of the left ventricle and aortic valvar stenosis or atresia. Note the severe hypoplasia of the ascending aorta in this heart with a hypoplastic left ventricle (not shown).
