Overview

There are in fact many different types of dextrocardia. In most cases, there will be other defects of the heart and abdomen area. Although it is rare, if the heart is completely normal, there are no further consequences to be concerned with.

Pathophysiology

Dextrocardia is not associated with any medical sequela.
