  4. I was born with Tetralogy of Fallot 66 years ago. I had a Blalock-Taussig Shunt in 1958, a Waterston Shunt in 1967, a “total repair” in 1980 and a PVR and ablation procedure in 2006. I had an ICD implanted in 2010 and I’m doing well. I know that I may need other procedures in the future but my health is good and I exercise every other day at the Med Center. I’m one of the survivors. The animation was well done.

    1. I also would love to see an animation of Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. This would be so helpful for our family who is so interested in my daughter’s condition, but doesn’t quite understand.

  7. Fantastic resource for CHD patients and parents. Would you consider adding Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum to the list please?

  8. Would be good to have SVT and rythem issues.

  9. I’d love to see (and share) one about Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and about cardiomyopathy.

  10. My son has Double Outlet Right Ventricle and I can hardly ever find anything about it.

  11. I’m a school nurse in Texas with a background in critical care. While I understand these conditions, my staff doesn’t. I plan to show these to a group of teachers that may have a student with a congenital heart defect this next year. I think these are great, but do you have other videos on health topics such as asthma, CF, diabetes type 1, epilepsy?? These are done very well and I would like to be able to let our staff watch these and understand better about medical issues a student in their classrooms might have!

    Thanks for the great work! kc

    1. Hi Kristi,

      Thanks for the kind words and happy to hear that you’ve found the heart animations useful! At this time the only animation I am aware of that we have on your list is asthma, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrIZV-07v3Y

  12. My grandson had the TAPVR. He also was born with a cortritriatrium. I would be interested in seeing an animation of this condition. Thanks to the Helen Devos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan Kevin is now a happy, outgoing, and healthy little boy after his two surgeries to correct the defects at 1 month old.
