Hypoplastic left heart syndrome


The morphological features of the hypoplastic left heart syndrome are:
  • mitral atresia or severe stenosis

  • aortic atresia or severe stenosis

  • left ventricular hypoplasia or aplasia

  • left atrial hypoplasia

  • interatrial communication

  • patent ductus arteriosus

  • aortic coarctation

  • right atrial dilatation

  • right ventricular dilatation and hypertrophy
