In brief: Respiratory distress
Ecd is a congenital defect of both the atrial and ventricular septa as well as abnormalities of the atrioventricular valves.
It is a complicated defect associated with down's syndrome frequently. Its symptoms may be due to too much blood flow to the lungs (respiratory diress and heart failure).Sometimes if not diagnosed early enough , pulmonary vascular disease(cyanosis) may occur.
