My son (Age :3 month ) having a heart problem.. according to ECHO report :
2D and M Mode Observation:
Aorta arises from right ventricle and positioned to right and anterior to pulmonary artery,Pulmonary arterty arises from left ventricle and both major vessels run parallel and right artium and right ventricle are slightly enlarged in size.
interventicular spectrum show perimembranous V.S.D.(6 mm).
Pulmonary arterty arises perdominently from left ventricle and reviews the major share from left ventricle and partly from right ventricle .
After that Dr suggested us to operate.
but the growth of the child is normal and there is no other problem.only some symptomes are visible like ..lips are getting purple when he is crying and bottom of legs are getting cold.
What's your suggestion in this case... is that the necessary to operate or not.
Your son has transposition of the great arteries and ventricular septa defect, or TGA/VSD. This means that the great arteries are switched and that there is a hole between the two lower heart chambers. Typically there,is also associated pulmonary valve stenosis, or obstruction. The decision for surgery is based on multiple issues, including the degree of pulmonary stenosis, the relationship of the great arteries, the size of the hole, and ventricular function, to name a few. Thus, without seeing your son, I cannot comment on the timing of his surgery. I would recommend that if you are not comfortable with the information you are getting, you should seek a second opinion.
Thanks Jeff...yes you are absolutly right ..
but now am going to take decision for surgery..because day by day the SP O2 precentage decreasing.(currently its 61%)
