Presenting complaints/signs

Cyanosis is it a cardiac cause or lung cause l.jpg

Cyanosis: is it a cardiac cause or lung cause

  • Hyperoxia test

    • Neonates with cyanotic congenital heart disease usually do not have significantly raised arterial Pao2 during administration of 100% oxygen.

Ventricular defect l.jpg

Small VSD


A loud, harsh, or blowing holosystolic murmur.

Large VSD

dyspnea, feeding difficulties, poor growth, profuse perspiration, recurrent pulmonary infections, and cardiac failure in early infancy.

Ventricular Defect


Syndromes associated with this condition

Slide10 l.jpg

VSD: ECG is normal but may show right ventricular hypertrophy, if present indicates defect is large and presence of pulmonary hypertension or pulmonry stenosis

Ventricular septal defect vsd l.jpg

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)

Small VSDs, the chest radiograph is usually normal

Large VSD: The presence of right ventricular hypertrophy, olegeimic lung fields (pulmonary hypertension or an associated pulmonic stenosis), gross cardiomegaly with prominence of both ventricles, the left atrium.

Ventricular septal defects l.jpg

Ventricular Septal defects

  • 30–50% of small defects close spontaneously, most frequently during the 1st 2 yr of life.

  • Small muscular VSDs are more likely to close (up to 80%) than membranous VSDs are (up to 35%).

  • infants with large defects have repeated episodes of respiratory infection and heart failure despite optimal medical management.

  • Surgical repair prior to development of an irreversible increase in pulmonary vasculalr resistance (usually prior to the patient's second birthday).

Atrial septal defects secundum l.jpg

Most common form of ASD (fossa ovalis)

In large defects, a considerable shunt of oxygenated blood flows from the left to the right atrium.

Mostly asymptomatic

The 2nd heart sound is characteristically widely split and fixed.

Atrial Septal Defects: secundum


Atrial septal defects primum l.jpg

Situated in the lower portion of the atrial septum and overlies the mitral and tricuspid valves. In most instances, a cleft in the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve is also noted.

Combination of a left-to-right shunt across the atrial defect and mitral insufficiency

C/F similar to that of an ostium secundum ASD

Atrial Septal Defects:primum

Atrial septal defect l.jpg

Enlargement of the right ventricle

Enlargement of atrium

Large pulmonary artery

increased pulmonary vascularity is.

Atrial Septal Defect

Slide16 l.jpg

The electrocardiogram in patients with a complete AV septal defect is distinctive. The principal abnormalities are (1) superior orientation of the mean frontal QRS axis with left axis deviation to the left upper or right upper quadrant, (2) counterclockwise inscription of the superiorly oriented QRS vector loop, (3) signs of biventricular hypertrophy or isolated right ventricular hypertrophy, (4) right ventricular conduction delay (RSR′ pattern in leads V3 R and V1 ), (5) normal or tall P waves, and (6) occasional prolongation of the P-R interval

Atrial septal defects l.jpg

Atrial Septal Defects

  • Secundum ASDs are well tolerated during childhood.

  • Antibiotic prophylaxis for isolated secundum ASDs is not recommended.

  • Surgery or transcatheter device closure is advised for all symptomatic patients and also for asymptomatic patients with a Qp:Qs ratio of at least 2:1.

  • Ostium primum defects are approached surgically

Patent ductus arteriosus l.jpg

Patent Ductus Arteriosus

  • Small defect no symptoms.

  • Large defect:

    • Wide pulse pressure

    • Enlarged heart

    • Thrill in L second IS

    • Continuous murmur

    • X-ray: prominent pulmonary artery with increased vascular markings.

  • Takes 10 years to develop

  • Symptoms proportionate to severity

  • Left ventricular failure right ventricular failure

  • Loud first heart sound with opening snap.

  • Diastolic murmur

  • Absent murmur if heart failure.

  • Surgical intervention if symptomatic
