IPCCC Term ATRIOVENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECT WITH VENTRICULAR IMBALANCE: DOMINANT RIGHT VENTRICLE, HYPOPLASTIC LEFT VENTRICLE
IPCCC Code 06.07.05
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiac malformation that is a form of atrioventricular septal defect (atrioventricular canal defect) with the right ventricle significantly larger than the left.
This heart has been sectioned to demonstrate the short axis of the ventricular mass. It is photographed to show the view from the apex looking towards the base. There is an atrioventricular septal defect with a common atrioventricular junction. The common atrioventricular valve is committed predominately to the right ventricle, producing right ventricular dominance. The left ventricle is hypoplastic, with excessive trabeculations and closely adjacent papillary muscles. The superior and inferior portions of the deficient muscular ventricular septum are marked with the black stars.
