Atrioventricular (AV) Septal Defect: Repair

If your baby's heart has an Atrioventricular or AV Septal Defect, your child's doctor may recommend a procedure to repair it. The goals of an AV Septal Defect repair are to close the hole between the chambers of your child's heart and repair the valves.  AV Septal Defect animations and models were developed by The Heart Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital to give families a better understanding of your child's diagnosis and potential treatment options.
