Canal auriculoventricular (defecto de relieve endocárdico)

Es una afección cardíaca anormal que se presenta durante el desarrollo del bebé. En esta afección, no existe separación entre las cámaras del corazón. Sin la separación, la sangre oxigenada y la sangre desoxigenada se mezclan, haciendo que el corazón trabaje más duro. El defecto de relieve endocárdico está fuertemente asociado con varias anomalías genéticas.
