Truncus Arteriosus Surgery in Lagos
Truncus arteriosus is an unusual birth defect (congenital). If you or your child has truncus arteriosus, one big blood artery exits the heart. In normal circumstances, the heart has two different arteries.
A baby with truncus arteriosus has only one great blood vessel or trunk exiting the heart, which then divides into blood arteries that go to the lungs and the body, instead of providing a separate pulmonary artery and aorta, each with its own three-leafed valves.
