About the disease

Atrioventricular canal defect is a congenital heart condition, which originates in the center of heart valves and results in a hole between them. As a result, valves are not able to regulate the blood flow properly. Because of the excessive blood flow, lungs and heart have to work twice as much to process all the incoming and outcoming blood. Heart muscles become enlarged in size, there is high blood pressure in the lungs and generally person starts to feel weak. If not treated, this condition can cause serious health problems.

Atrioventricular canal defect can affect either two upper chambers or all four of them at once. This disease is usually diagnosed during the first weeks of baby's life. Atrioventricular canal defect occurs during the prenatal development. It can be caused by such conditions as rubella, virus infections and Down syndrome. If mother had infections during pregnancy or if she smoked, drank alcohol and took certain drugs, it can also influence baby's health. According to Boston Children's Hospital, 20% of atrioventricular canal defect is caused by Down syndrome. This defect is present in 2 babies out of 10 000 worldwide.  

Symptoms

  • Bluish, pale skin of the face
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Fatigue
  • Poor weight gain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weak pulse
  • Swollen feet and arms

Diagnosis

During the first weeks of baby's life a doctor can notice murmur and whooshing sound in the heart, which can indicate heart defect.

  • Electrocardiogram records electrical signals, which are sent through the heart. If a patient has atrioventricular canal defect, these signals are abnormal.
  • Chest X-Ray can show if the heart enlarged in size.
  • Echocardiography is probably the most precise diagnostic measure, as it produces image of the heart and can record if there is a hole between upper heart chambers. It can also show if there is a problem with the blood flow and heart valves. Most importantly, it creates live-action images, which allows doctors to see not only one image of the heart, but to track the dynamics of heart`s work.

Treatment

If a baby was diagnosed with atrioventricular canal defect, he or she will need to undergo surgery to repair the defect as no medication and non-surgical procedures are able to change such anatomical flaw as the hole between heart chambers.

Surgical reconstruction includes closing of the hole with several patches in order to normalize the blood flow. During such surgery surgeons can use a heart-lung bypass machine, which would carry out the heart and lung function, while a patient is operated on.

After the surgery a child needs to undergo cardiac rehabilitation to fully recover after surgery. He may need nutritional support to gain weight and special drugs, which would boost child's stamina and help him overcome fatigue.

Overall, surgery reconstruction has favorable outcome and most of the patients who underwent it were able to lead healthy lifestyle.
