Disease at a Glance

A rare congenital cardiac malformation that is a variant of an atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) with an interatrial communication (ostium primum defect) just above the common atrioventricular (AV) valve, no interventricular communication just below the atrioventricular valve, a common atrioventricular junction but separate right and left atrioventricular valvar orifices, and a three-leaflet, left-sided component of the common atrioventricular valve (''cleft''). Shunting is restricted to the atrial level because of fusion of the leaflets of the common AV valve with the crest of the ventricular septum.

The cardiovascular system is made up of the heart and blood vessels, including the arteries, veins, and capillaries. Common symptoms of problems in the cardiovascular system include high blood pressure, heart rate or heart rhythm problems, chest pain or discomfort, pain or tingling in the hands or feet, and fatigue.
