What Sort Of Disorder Is A Coronary Artery Anomaly
Congenital defect: There are multiple congenital abnormalities involving the origin or anatomy of the coronary arteries. Some are benign, others require surgical repair. Undiagnosed coronary artery anomalies may result sudden cardiac death in sports. Fortunately, serious abnormalities occur in less than 1 % of births. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Blood vessel dilatio: An aneurysm is a problem of a blood vessel where the wall is weak or injury, causing it to bulge outward like a balloon. Cerebral means in the brain. Cerebral aneursyms can lead to blood clots or bleeding in the brain, often referred to as a type of "stroke", or medically, a cerebro-vascular accident (cva). Sometimes they can be left alone, other times they need surgery. ...Read more
Born with it: It is a heart defect you are born with. It may be simple, moderate, or very serious. They include "holes in the heart", valve problems, malformed or absent chambers, valves, or blood vessels. Just under 1 % of all babies are born with some type of defect, often minor and temporary. They are usually diagnosed shortly after birth, occasionally much later. ...Read more

Congenital defect: Ebstein's anomaly is a rare heart defect that's present at birth (congenital). The tricuspid valve — the valve between the right atrium and right ventricle — is malformed and doesn't work properly. Blood leaks back through the valve, making the heart work less efficiently. Ebstein's may result in heart enlargement or heart failure. Rhythm problems are common. It can be mild or severe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain aneurysm: A cavernous aneurysm is a common finding that if truly cavernous, indicates that it is located outside of the brain and generally carries a benign prognosis. It may be of concern if it gets sufficiently large (usually > 1.5 cm) and presses on important nerves. Treatment is usually endovascular, including now flow diverting devices. Smaller cavernous aneurysms are usually managed conservatively. ...Read more
Birth defect: Malformation occurs from abnormal development of the fetal anatomic structure. Congenital anomaly is a term used to refer to an abnormality present at birth. There are many conditions that place a baby at risk for having one, but often the cause is unknown. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Bleeding: Our bodies have a system of blood and tissue factors and cells (platelets) which cause our blood to clot with an injury, so that bleeding stops. Abnormality of any component causes a clotting disorder. Most common is excessive bleeding, as in hemophilia or vonwillebrands disease; you can also have excessive clotting, or what is termed a thrombotic disorder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Enlarged blood vesse: An aneurysm is an enlarged blood vessel typically created by a weakness in the wall. The pouching is generally thin and weak and prone to rupture. Think of a tire that gets bubbles in its wall before popping. They can happen anywhere, but aorta and brain are common. They have many causes, but high blood pressure and smoking are often factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rare CHD: A rare congenital heart defect. The pulmonary valve doesn’t form and not enough blood can flow to the lungs to get oxygen; only through the PDA (patent ductus arteriosus). It often occurs as part of a condition called tetralogy of fallot. There is usually a hole between the left and right ventricles of the heart (ventricular septal defect). Surgery as a newborn is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
