Peer-reviewed case report says implantation of the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart restores "normal biventricular circulation" to a congenital patient with only one functioning ventricle
Because the morphologic left ventricle
and the left bundle branch lie to the right of the morphologic right ventricle
in congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, initial septal depolarization is from right to left and often inferosuperiorly as well, as seen in Figure 1.
Surgeons use the sequence to reconstruct a child's heart so that it can function with only a single working ventricle
, but only about half of patients treated in this way survive to adulthood.
Larger cysts, three or more centimeters in diameter will widen the third ventricle
while smaller cysts (less than one centimeter) are not seen with the naked eye.
Mean value of internal cavities of left ventricle
at end of the diastole in pre-exercise dogs were 3.
Transcerebellar (via posterior fontanelle): posterior horn of lateral ventricles
, tentorium, cerebellar hemispheres and vermis.
Antenatal ultrasound (US) performed at 28 weeks' gestation showed mild lateral cerebral ventricle
dilatation, but no other fetal anomalies.
Such separation suggested that the turtle does have two ventricles
, Bruneau says.
Remodeling of the rat right and left ventricles
in experimental hypertension.
The electrical impulses split here into the right and left bundles that travel through each side of the ventricles
and wind up in the Purkinje Fibers which cause the ventricle
Recommended Usage: The device consists of a pulse generator that is implanted under the skin near the shoulder, with leads leading to the interior wall of the right atrium, the interior wall of the right ventricle
, and the outside wall of the left ventricle
Powered by internal and external battery sources, the AbioCor is designed to extend the lives of people with advanced heart disease - including ventricle
damage, congestive heart failure and coronary heart disease.
