Birth defects - Heart defects are part of CCHD
Posted in 2014

1. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (also called HLHS). In this condition, the left side of the heart doesn’t form fully, and the heart can’t properly pump blood. A baby with HLHS needs open heart surgery or a heart transplant. Open heart surgery is when the chest is cut open and surgery is done on a part of the heart. A heart transplant is surgery in which a damaged heart is removed and replaced with a healthy heart from another person. Some babies also need medicines to make their heart muscle stronger, to lower their blood pressure or to help the body get rid of extra fluids. 

2. Pulmonary atresia (also called PA). In this condition, a baby’s heart’s pulmonary valve doesn’t form properly. This means that enough blood can’t flow from the heart to the lungs. Treatment may include medicines to help blood flow, open heart surgery or heart transplant. 

3. Tetralogy of Fallot (also called TOF). Babies with this condition have heart defects that prevent enough blood from reaching the lungs. This means the blood that’s pumped to the body may not have enough oxygen. Babies with TOF need heart surgery and lifelong medical care.

4. Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (also called TAPV or TAPVR). In this condition, the veins that take blood from the lungs to the heart don’t connect to the heart the right way. It causes blood to circle back and forth between the heart and lungs. But blood never flows out to the rest of the body like it should. A baby with this condition needs surgery as soon as possible. Without treatment, the heart can get bigger, leading to heart failure. Heart failure is when the heart can’t pump enough blood.

5. Transposition of the great arteries (also called TGA). Babies with this condition have the positions of two important arteries switched. This means the blood that’s pumped to the body may not have enough oxygen. Babies with TGA need heart surgery and lifelong medical care.

6. Tricuspid atresia (also called TA). In this condition, the heart’s tricuspid valve is missing or doesn’t develop normally. If this valve doesn’t open, enough blood can’t flow into the lungs to pick up the oxygen it needs. Babies with TA need surgery. 

7. Truncus arteriosis. Babies with this condition have only one artery that leaves the heart instead of two. This causes blood with oxygen to mix with blood that doesn’t have oxygen. Babies with this condition need surgery because over time, they can develop a life-threatening problem called pulmonary hypertension. This is high blood pressure in the arteries to the lungs.

My advise
1..   Couples mind and health plays major role on birth the child
2..   If you face any health problem including hypertension control it with your healthy life style  n plan for the child.
3...  Drink sufficient water and eat healthy food
