Double outlet right ventricle is a congenital abnormality of the heart in which the major outlet vessels of the heart, the aorta and the pulmonary artery, both arise from the right ventricle. This problem, which is not normal, calls for the wisdom of a pediatric cardiologist versed in congenital heart problems, as there are a number of variations in this condition that must be understood in order to properly approach treatment.
Please note that I am an adult cardiologist, and that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online.
