Question: what's the combined name for tricuspid atresia, pulmonary atresia, and hypoplastic right ventricle? What is the name for hypoplastic right ventricle, pulmonary atresia, and tricuspid atresia? not just one or two but all three together. what's that called? and yes a person with all three can survive, my 3 year old daughter is living proof. she had 3 surgeries starting with 4 days old 6 months old and a month shy of 3 years old. we knew before she was born. however, she has some restrictions..

Answer: The last post is incorrect. They were referring to tetralogy of fallot, and that includes 1. VSD, 2. Pulmonary Stenosis, 3. Overriding Aorta, and 4. Right Ventricular Hypertrophy. The conditions you described together are not cumulatively referred to as any congenital defect that I am aware of. They are each a diagnosis on their own, and existing together, I am not under the opinion that a patient could survive without immediate corrective surgery, and even then, with a low probability of survival.
