One side of the babys heart is larger than the other... Ashley [Proud Mommy] 3 kids; Fulton, Missouri 1213 posts

Has anyone ever been told that one side of their babys heart was larger than the other (based on ultrasounds)? If so, what did your doctor do? What did they say could happen, and when your child was born did they have to have any surgeries or anything what so ever done to them?

My daughter's right side of her heart is larger then her left. What happens depends on why it's larger. There is a disease called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome that is caused by the left side not growing and the development ceases. They're in in utero but once they're born they need a lot of intervention. My daughter was born with ASD, VSD, Cocarctation of the aorta, a bicuspid aorta, and the beginnings of mitral stenosis. Her right side was enlarged due to stress and heart disease. She's had two surgeries (coarctation repair and mitral valve replacement) and there's more to come but, with a good medical team the process is do-able. Hard as hell, I won't lie, but doable.

If you have ANY questions, feel free to contact me!
