Tricuspid atresia is a heart defect present at birth in which one of the valves (tricuspid valve) between two of the heart's chambers — the upper right chamber (right atrium) and the lower right chamber (right ventricle) — isn't formed. Instead, there's solid tissue between the chambers. The signs and symptoms are:
• Blue tinge to the skin and lips (cyanosis)
• Difficulty breathing (dyspnea)
• Tiring easily, especially during feedings
• Slow growth and poor weight gain
HOW IS TRICUSPID ATRESIA DIAGNOSED?
A General Physician diagnoses Tricuspid Atresia by performing a routine prenatal ultrasound that monitors the growth of the baby and by performing a physical examination. Additional tests include ultrasound of the heart, chest X-ray, MRI of the heart and electrocardiogram to diagnose Tricuspid Atresia.
HOW IS TRICUSPID ATRESIA TREATED?
There is a complicated procedure called PGE1 that is undertaken to maintain the patient ductus arteriosus. In other cases surgical procedures like Blalock-Taussig and cavopulmonary anastomosis are also done. Other surgeries and treatment modes here include Fontan procedure to help in enhancing blood flow.
DID YOU KNOW?
If a baby has Tricuspid Atresia, he/she will need continued care for years after successful treatment.
