In brief: AV canal
Is an endocardial cushion defect in which there is a deficiency of the septum primum associated with an inlet type of ventricular septal defect.
Usually has a cleft left a-v valve. Other concomitant cardiac defects may also be present as well as atrio-ventricular and ventriculo arterial discordance or concordance. Need echocardiogram, cardiac cath, and maybe cardiac MRI as well.
