Acyanotic Heart Disease Research

Acyanotic heart disease is a broad term for any congenital heart defect (CDH) in which all of the blood returning to the right side of the heart passes through the lungs and pulmonary vasculature in the normal fashion. The common forms of acyanotic congenital heart defects are those where there is a defect in one of the walls separating the chambers of the heart, or obstruction to one valve or artery.
