Dextrocardia with sistus Inversus

My son was born on 9/14/99 with dextracardia with situs inversus
the only way i found this out is that i was persistent because he had a small heart murmur on 3cm or mm ...very small size of
a pen head.





Are they any other test i should ask to cardiologist to take
so that i can take precautions..I heard that kartengers syndrome
is affiliated with this and I also heard of stories of pavpc
another heart disorder

Dear Gerald,

it would be important to have your son thoroughly examined by a pediatric cardiologist who specializes in congenital heart disease.  There are various types of inversus and they may effect the great vessels and heart in different ways.  Echocardiograms, MRI and catheterization may all be required to delineate the extent of defects in the heart.

I would strongly recommend Douglas Moody here at CCF as well as Dan  Murphy,  both pediatric cardiologists.
