Defecto del tabique ventricular

El defecto del tabique ventricular es un defecto congénito en el corazón que ocurre cuando existe una abertura anormal en la pared que separa los ventrículos derecho e izquierdo. Esta condición puede estar asociada con otros defectos cardíacos. Muchos defectos pequeños se resuelven espontáneamente. De no ser así, es posible obtener buenos resultados a través de una reparación quirúrgica.Defecto del tabique ventricular
