This heart abnormality can be identified before the baby is born and can be treated immediately after delivery.
It can be diagnosed by fetal ultrasound after the 36th week of pregnancy.
The treatment will depend on the type of single ventricle in question and the baby’s health and symptoms. Surgery to correct this anomaly must be performed in the first weeks of life, its purpose being to connect the existing ventricle to the aorta, so that it is in charge of supplying blood to the body, except for the lungs, since they will receive the low-oxygen blood directly.
