Double outlet right ventricle refers to a heart disease that a baby is born with, in which both the pulmonary arteries and the aorta are connected to the right ventricle in place of the left ventricle, which is primarily responsible for pumping blood. A ventricular septal defect or a particular chromosome abnormality may result in this condition. Surgery is the necessary method of treatment for most cases. Pregnant women are advised against consuming alcohol or smoking in order to prevent this condition in their children.
