    The surgical therapies for hypoplastic left heart syndrome have evolved by two quite disparate routes. One approach has been the staged reconstruc­ tion operations utilizing an initial operation pioneered by many but developed by Dr. William Norwood and subsequently modified by many other investigators. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a severe congenital heart defect in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped.. In a normal heart, the heart's left side has the job of pumping oxygenated blood into the aorta, the large artery that carries blood to the a child with HLHS: The mitral valve, which separates the two left chambers of the heart, is too small .

    Sometimes during pregnancy, the left side of a baby's heart doesn't grow the way it should. This causes a rare defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). About .   In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, most of the parts of the left side of the heart are either underdeveloped or totally absent. This includes the left ventricle, the mitral valve, and the aorta. The wall of the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber) may be abnormally thick, making it unable to contain enough blood.

    In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, or HLHS, the left side of the heart is underdeveloped. This syndrome affects one to two infants out of 10, and represents about 1 percent of all congenital heart disease. HLHS is slightly more common in boys than in girls. In rare cases, a defective gene may be inherited, but in most cases, HLHS has no. Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome! has 6, members. This group is to make everybody aware of HLHS! It will also make people realize how much it can.

The Morphology of Hypoplasia of the Left Heart Audrey Smith, Marco Pozzi and Robert H Anderson 2. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a spectrum of heart diseases in which the left-heart structures are underdeveloped.

These structures include the mitral valve, the left ventricle, the aortic valve, and the aorta. HLHS is a congenital heart defect that begins during pregnancy. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a heart condition present from birth (congenital heart defect).In HLHS, the heart's left side (including the aorta, aortic valve, left ventricle and mitral valve) is underdeveloped.

At birth, oxygen-rich blood bypasses the underdeveloped left side of the heart, going through openings between the left and right side. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) occurs when the left side of the heart fails to develop normally. As a result: The left ventricle does not develop and is too small; Both the mitral valve and the aortic valve may not develop appropriately or are too small to function adequately; The ascending aorta is not well developed.

The best time to learn about genetic risks and testing options is before pregnancy. Assessing risks in families affected by congenital heart disease (CHD) is a complex process that takes into account the affected family member's heart defect, medical history, physical and other characteristics, as well as the family medical history.
