Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect

  • Antonio F. Corno

Abstract

Pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect is a rare malformation, with an incidence of 0.042–0.070 per 1000 live births, or 1.5–3.4% of congenital heart defects, and a slightly higher prevalence in males than in females. Eighteen to 20% of patients with tetralogy of Fallot have pulmonary atresia.
