MARTINEZ HECTOR, Hector Achacollo et al. Single ventricle in a patient 5 months, a case report. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.2, pp.96-98. ISSN 1817-7433.

Congenital heart defects have an incidence of approximately 1 of 100 newborns.About half of affected children die during the first year of life if those are untreated. Univentricular heart is one of them, characterized by the presence of only one ventricular cavity: 80% of patients, from the morphological point of view, present a single ventricle similar to left ventricular cavity, separate from an infundibular cavity output by a bulboventricular partition. In this anomaly the pulmonary and systemic venous blood is mixed into the ventricular chamber, resulting in the patients general hypoxia and heart failure. We report the case of an infant of 6 months of age with presence of this disease and other pathologies associated with this malformation.

Palabras clave : single ventricle; heart defects congenital.
