Cor triatriatum


A rare congenital malformation where the heart has three atria instead of the normal two due to the presence of a separating membrane.


* Extra heart chamber * Rapid breathing * Wheezing * Coughing * Pulmonary congestion * Progressive heart enlargement * High pulmonary artery pressure * Heart murmurs * Generalized edema * Poor oxygenation of body tissues * Tachycardia * Cyanosis * Failure to thrive * Breathing difficulty on exertion * Rapid breathing * Orthopnea * Cough * Irritability * Pulmonary edema * Recurrent hemophthysis * Growth retardation * Enlarged heart


signs and symptoms of Cor Triatriatum may vary on an individual basis for each patient. Only your doctor can provide adequate diagnosis of any signs or symptoms and whether they are indeed Cor Triatriatum symptoms.


* Additional Heart Sounds: A heart sound that is heard in addition to the normal two beats. * Bacterial endocarditis: Infection and inflammation of the inner layers of the heart, most commonly the valves cause by bacteria. * Breathing difficulties: Various types of breathing difficulty (dyspnea). * Cough: The noise produced from the sudden expulsion of air from the lungs * Coughing: The noise produced from the sudden expulsion of air from the lungs * Cyanosis: Blueness or purple coloring of skin. * Death: The cessation of life * Failure to thrive: Slow growth or inadequate weight gain of an infant or child. * Generalized edema: The occurrence of oedema all over the but particularly over the lower half of the legs * Heart symptoms: Symptoms affecting the heart * Irritability: Excessive feelings of annoyance or frustration. * Mitral stenosis: Narrowing of the mitral heart valve * Orthopnea: is the dyspnoea which occurs on lying down and is relieved on sitting up * Poor growth: Poor body growth or delayed physical development. * Pulmonary congestion: A condition which is characterized by engorgement of the pulmonary vessels and transudation of fluid into the alveoli * Pulmonary edema: Severe condition of excess fluid in the lungs. * Pulmonary hypertension: High blood pressure in arteries connecting the right-side of the heart to lungs. * Rapid breathing: Excessively rapid breathing * Right heart failure: Heart failure of the right side of the heart * Tachycardia: Excessively rapid heart beat. * Wheezing: A whistling like continuous sound that is caused by the respiratory system
