Heart Defects

 Congenital heart defects are physical complications arising from irregular development of the heart or major blood vessels. At smallest 18 separate types of congenital heart defects are documented, with numerous extra anatomic differences. Current development in diagnosis and treatment (surgery and heart catheterization) marks it possible ways to repair most defects, even those once supposed to be hopeless. A usual heart has valves, arteries and chambers that transmit the blood in a circulatory outline: body–heart–lungs–heart–body. When altogether chambers and valves work properly, the blood is impelled through the heart, to the lungs for oxygen, back the heart and out to the body for distribution of oxygen. When valves, chambers, arteries and veins are abnormal, this flow outline can be weakened. Congenital heart defects are deformities that are present at birth. They may or may not have a troublesome effect on an individual's circulatory system.
