Pulmonary valve agenesis-intact ventricular septum-persistent ductus arteriosus syndrome
Synonyms: APV/PDA, non-Fallot type
A rare life-threatening congenital non-syndromic conotruncal heart malformation disease characterized by absent or severely undeveloped pulmonary valve leaflets (with a restrictive ring of thickened tissue at the place of the pulmonary valve annulus) associated with an intact ventricular septum and a patent ductus arteriosus manifesting with marked respiratory insufficiency. Additional features include dilated main pulmonary artery (with or without dilatation of pulmonary artery branches) to-and-fro flow at site of the dysplastic pulmonary valve and systolic pressure gradient across narrowed pulmonary valve. Tricuspid atresia and variable extra-cardiac anomalies (e.g. diaphragmatic hernia or cleft lip/palate) may be present.

Project FAVA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit patient advocacy group that promotes awareness of fibro-adipose vascular anomalies, educates patients, their families, and the global community, and provides helpful resources to those with FAVA. Project FAVA also advances research to move the needle towards more effective and less invasive treatment options for FAVA patients.
Collaborative Research Advocacy for Vascular Anomalies Network (CaRAVAN)
As the research-based umbrella organization for all vascular anomalies, we are on a mission to develop a unified network of patients and their families, advocates, researchers, and clinicians who influence research from initial concept and design to patient care delivery
