Double Outlet Right Ventricle



Double outlet right ventricle (DORV) is a congenital heart defect characterized by the connection of the two main arteries, the aorta and the pulmonary artery, to the right ventricle. Double outlet right ventricles are rare, affecting only 1 in 6,000-10,000 births. In the US, that translates roughly to 1 new DORV per day. This 3D printed heart model features a DORV with a stenotic PA, repaired with a conduit, a subaortic ventricular septal defect (VSD), and a joined coronary artery and sinus.
