Doble salida ventricular derecha

La doble salida ventricular derecha (DSVD) es una cardiopatía congénita en la cual la aorta y la arteria pulmonar salen del ventrículo derecho. Esta configuración permite que la sangre desoxigenada sea llevada a todo el cuerpo. El cuerpo no puede obtener suficiente oxígeno, haciendo que el corazón trabaje más fuerte para tratar de traer más sangre oxigenada al organismo.
