Congenital heart disease most commonly arises from faulty embryogenesis during gestational weeks 3 through 8, when major cardiovascular structures develop The various structural anomalies in congenital heart disease can be assigned to three major groups based on their hemodynamic and clinical consequences: (1) malformations causing a left-to-right shunt; (2) malformations causing a right-to-left shunt (cyanotic congenital heart diseases); and (3) malformations causing obstruction. CLASSIFICATION OF CHD GROUP 1: LEFT TO RIGHT SHUNTS(ACYANOTIC CHD) a. Atrial septal defect(ASD) b. ventricular septal defect(VSD) c. patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) GROUP 2: RIGHT TO LEFT SHUNTS(CYANOTIC CHD) a. tetralogy of fallot b. tricuspid atresia c. truncus arteriosus d. transposition of great vessels GROUP 3: OBSTRUCTIVE LESIONS a. Aortic stenosis b. coarctation of the Aorta ...
