In brief: Complex congenital
Dorv is a congenital heart disease in which the aorta rises from the right ventricle ( that pumps blood to the lungs), instead of from the left ventricle (that pumps blood to the body).
Both the pulmonary artery (which carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs) and aorta (which carries oxygen-rich blood to the body) come from the right ventricle. There is also a vsd (ventricular septal defect).

In brief: Serious heart diseas
Dorv is a life threatening congenital (from birth) heart disease, due to malformation of the heart.
The perfusion for both the body and the lungs is powered by the right ventricle which is not intended to do that work. It is often accompanied by malformation of the great vessels which often need repair early in life. Multiple surgeries are required to correct.
