Cor triatriatum or a triatrial heart is a rare congenital heart defect that may eventually lead to features of congestive heart failure and obstruction over time. Usually, the human heart has four chambers. In the cor triatriatum heart, there is a small extra chamber above the left, which slows the passage of blood from the lungs into the heart.
Cure and medications
- Surgery: Infants should be referred to a hospital with sophisticated diagnostic procedures and cardiovascular surgery. Reducing fluid volume with diuretic drugs before the surgery can reduce congestive heart failure
- Healthy lifestyle changes: Adopting a healthy lifestyle by adopting specific dietary restrictions on fluids and salt can help reduce the risks involved in a triatrial heart condition.
- Medication: The drug digitalis administered decreases the heart rate and strengthens the heart's contractions. Oxygen therapy may also prove beneficial.
- Devices: Devices implanted to control the heart rhythm, and the most commonly used devices are pacemakers.
Because people with triatrial heart are susceptible to bacterial infection of the membranes surrounding the heart, respiratory infections should be treated vigorously.
