What Is Hypoplastic Right 12th Rib
Congenital: Congenitally underdeveloped right ventricle. If right ventricle unusable , total cavopulmonary diversion (fontan) required. Depending on the size of the pulmonary arteries, a hemi-fontan plus aorto(arterial) pulmonary shunt and enlargement of ASD done first and later total cavopulmonary diversion completed. Better prognosis than hypoplastic left heart. ...Read more
A congenital defect: Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (hlhs) is a specific type of congenital heart defect that consists of varying degrees of underdevelopment of the left-sided heart structures including the mitral valve, left ventricle, aortic valve, and aortic arch. Hlhs most likely has a genetic cause and occurs early during fetal development, however the genes involved have not yet been entirely elucidated. ...Read more
Normal variant: Hypoplastic right vertebral artery implies that this artery is very small and its function is taken over by the left vertebral artery. This is a normal variant and does not cause any problems unless you develop significant blockage in the left vertebral artery such as happens with vertebral artery dissection. ...Read more
Weakness of heart: When the left ventricle fails to pump normally dysfunction is present. The two common types include poor ejection of blood from a weak and enlarged heart or poor filling of the heart from a stiff muscle wall. Myocardial ischema is a common cause but there are many other causes including those secondary to valve dysfunction, hypertension, alcohol use, viral infection and miscellaneous causes. ...Read more
Congenital: You were born with it that way and it doesn't matter, so forget about it. Your left vertebral artery, left carotid and right carotid are handling the supply for you. ...Read more

Normal Variants: These describe the relative contribution to the intracranial circulation. These are both normal variants. ...Read more
R thorax: Underneath your right ribs are your R lung, liver, gallbladder, and some of your large & small intestine. Do you have pain in that area? And if so, exactly which part? And is it triggered by a meal, activity, etc? ...Read more
Surgery: Typically, a three surgery strategy is pursued. The first stage (norwood) is in the first few days of life. Stage 2 (glenn) is at 4-6 months, and stage 3 (fontan) is at age 2-4 years. The goals of this strategy are to provide reliable blood flow to the lungs and the body and to normalize the workload on the heart. Best results are in specialized congenital heart centers. ...Read more
Probable neuritis: Subtle burning under the left rib cage may be due to intercostal neuritis, which is inflammation of the nerve that runs under the rib. It could also be due to a muscle strain, or could possibly be referred from elsewhere. If the pain has only been there a short time, i would take over-the-counter analgesics and see if goes away on its own. Otherwise i would have it checked out. ...Read more
End diastolic volume: End diastolic volume is a better estimate of cardiac enlargement as it typically uses to orthogonal traced planes for estimation. ...Read more
Hard to say: There are many potential causes including musculoskeletal conditions such as costochodritis, which is an inflammation of the rib at the bone cartilage junction to conditions involving the inner organs of that area including the lung, liver, and gallbladder. Consider being seen, a detailed exam and possibly some further studies can usually determine the cause. Thank you. ...Read more
Whats the difference between right ventricular enlargement, cardiomyopathy and right sided heart failure? What is worse?
Hello again!: RV enlargement can be a SIGN of something wrong with the RV (weakness, pressure or volume overload). Cardiomyopathy means muscle weakness: the ventricle fails to contracts with normal vigor. This can be due to many things: the commonest are viral infection, alcohol, and genetics. If the RV can't handle the load, it may eventually fail resulting in"right sided heart failure". ...Read more
More info needed: It is very difficult to answer this question without more information about type of pain, location, duration etc. ...Read more
See below:: It's a congenital heart disease in which the aorta rises from the right ventricle (the chamber of the heart that pumps blood to the lungs), instead of from the left ventricle (the normal pumpng chamber to the body). Both the pulmonary artery (which carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs) and aorta (which carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the body) comefrom the same pumping chamber. ...Read more
