Atresia tricuspídea

Es un defecto que ocurre cuando falta la válvula cardíaca tricúspide o está anormalmente desarrollada. El defecto bloquea el flujo de sangre desde la aurícula derecha hasta el ventrículo derecho. Por último, la sangre no puede entrar a los pulmones, donde tiene que ir a recoger oxígeno.
