Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect


Hearts with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect have a biventricular arrangement, concordant atrioventricular connections, unrestrictive ventricular septal defect, single aortic outlet and absent luminal continuity between the right ventricle and the pulmonary arterial circulation.
