ⓘ Double inlet left ventricle

A double inlet left ventricle or "single ventricle", is a congenital heart defect appearing in 5 in 100.000 newborns, where both the left atrium and the right atrium feed into the left ventricle. The right ventricle is hypoplastic or does not exist.

Both Atria communicate with the ventricle by one of the atrioventricular valves. There is a large shunt from left to right with rapidly developing pulmonary hypertension. Without life-prolonging interventions, the condition is fatal, but with intervention, the newborn may survive. Even if there is no fruit of the disease, the diagnosis can be made in utero by fetal echocardiography.
