Tricuspid atresia is a heart defect present at birth (congenital) 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. Common symptoms associated with tricuspid atresia include:
• rapid breathing
• shortness of breath, or dyspnea
• a bluish skin color, or cyanosis
• fatigue that occurs during feeding
• slow growth
HOW IS TRICUSPID ATRESIA DIAGNOSED?
This condition may be discovered during routine prenatal ultrasound imaging or when the baby is examined after birth. Bluish skin is present at birth. A heart murmur is often present at birth and may increase in loudness over several months.
Tests may include the following:
• Chest x-ray
• Cardiac catheterization
• MRI of the heart
HOW IS TRICUSPID ATRESIA TREATED?
Treatment for tricuspid atresia involves surgery to ensure adequate blood flow through the heart and into the lungs, allowing your baby's body to receive the proper amount of oxygen-rich blood. Often, this requires more than one surgical procedure which include:
1. Atrial septostomy
3. Pulmonary artery band replacement
4. Glenn procedure
5. Fontan procedure
Surgical procedures are followed by antibiotic medications.
