Endocardial cushion defects, more commonly known as atrioventricular (AV) canal or septal defects, include a range of defects characterized by involvement of the atrial septum, the ventricular septum, and one or both of the AV valves. A complete AV septal defect indicates the presence of both atrial and ventricular septal defects with ...Read more
I'm 37wks pregnant & baby has avsd. Doctor suggested elective cesarian at 38wks as baby's heart weakening (110beat/min). Is this best for both of us?
Fetal center.: Your baby's case should be managed according to a multidisciplinary fetal care center recommendations, with input from pediatric cardiology, maternal-fetal medicine, neonatology and obstetrics. A pre-labor cesarean delivery is not necessary for most avsds, especially if the fetus is syndromic (down?). On the other hand, if fetal testing is non-reassuring then prompt delivery may prove life-saving. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Complete avsd size 29 mm in three month child with pah and av regurgitation is there. Could it be repaired?
Yes : Usually if it's a balanced avsd (normal sized ventricles) then regardless of defect size it is repairable . Pah at the age of three months is usually not fixed (reversible) and most probably secondary to the large left to right shunt. Even if the baby has down syndrome, at three months of age pah is usually reversible. Av valve regurg is part of avsd and does not preclude patient from repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: A partial avsd can be associated with a murmur and yet the patient may have no symptoms. It may not require surgery. It wil depend on the size of the defect and valve issues. A cardiac echocardiogram/doppler study (performed by someone familiar with congential heart defects, such as a board-certified pediatric cardiologist ) can detect the partial avsd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hopefully this helps: Not sure i understand your question fully, but atrioventricular septal defects (avsd) typically have sizable holes on the atrial and ventricular portions of the heart. This causes major problems in some children to gain weight, and even breathe well, and they often need diuretics before surgery. These defects should be closed before 6 months of age, and i hope this baby is being closely followed! ...Read more
Depends: There is a lot of variability in size with a VSD and treatment varies.Some will actually close on their own, so nothing beyond watchful waiting is needed.The big ones are monitored and sometimes need meds to support the heart until baby is big enough to make the surgery a bit easier technically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the clinical findings of an adult with a partial avsd atrioventicular septal defect?If missed on echo, would there at least be signs?
Avsd: It is highly unlikely that an atrioventricular septal defect would be missed on echo. A small ASD or vsd might be missed but a defect involving the junction of atrium/ventricles isn't likely to be missed and could have a continuous murmur and might have shortness of breath and arrhythmias. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I received a letter saying my echocardiogram is satisfactory with mild to moderate eccentric m.R through the cleft in left a.Vsurgical repaired avsd?
Wording is strange: I guess you are questioning the word 'satisfactory' in this instance. Folks with that repair often have mitral regurgitation (mr) because the mitral valve is pretty abnormal at birth. Surgery rarely makes all of it go away. So 'mild' isn't bad. Mild/moderate a little more of a concern but usually well tolerated. If the left ventricle is normal sized and you feel well, leave it alone. Follow up. ...Read more
My 3 m.O. Ds cousin has complete avsd with unbalance ventricle, small pda.Malaysian doc can do nothing. Who, where would u recommend? What's the cost?
Too complex: This is not a good situation, as described. It would require multiple heart operations and still a normal heart would likely not be the end result, even if they were born in the us. The cost would be very high (>$100, 000) for the whole package and would take years with an uncertain, and not normal, outcome. Cost will vary tremendously from institution to institution, but it will still be high. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
