The cardiac ultrasound scan confirmed an acyanotic cardiac lesion with a complete atrioventricular canal defect, a common atrium, an interrupted inferior vena cava, a small patent ductus arteriosus and a moderate ventricular septal defect.
The presence of an atrioventricular canal defect (AV) was defined as "complete" if a single common atrioventricular valve was present, and "partial" if both atrioventricular valves (mitral and tricuspid) were seen with either a primum atrial septal defect, an inlet ventricular septal defect or a cleft anterior leaflet of the mitral valve.
I have watched the close-up video of our cardiac surgeons repairing a complex atrioventricular canal defect. They were essentially creating septa and valves that were not there at birth.
In addition to the situs inversus totalis, a complete right-to-left reversal of the thoracic and abdominal organs, and her heart being on the right side of her chest, a condition known as dextrocardia, Isabelle's heart has at least seven severe defects, including: transposition of the great arteries; the pulmonary stenosis that keeps her heart from pumping enough blood; and atrioventricular canal defect, a condition that includes her having a large hole in the center of her heart.
