Hypoplastic left heart syndrome

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a rare congenital heart defect in which the left side of the heart is severely underdeveloped. It may affect the left ventricle, aorta, aortic valve, or mitral valve.

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome symptoms include:

·         Grayish-blue skin color (cyanosis)

·         Rapid difficult breathing

·         Poor feeding

·         Cold hands and feet

·         Weak pulse

·         Being unusually drowsy or inactive.

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome can be diagnosed prenatally or after birth via echocardiography. Presence of a cystic hygroma increases the risk of HLHS in a fetus.

Cardiology research Journals like Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a global open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews articles related to Hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
