Abstract

Truncus arteriosus communis (TAC) is a rare heart disorder with the prevalence of approximately 1%, mostly in male newborns with congenital heart defect (CHD). In this disease, aorta and pulmonary artery have not separated during fetal development and both originate jointly from a truncal vessel. In addition, various disorders are reported as associations of mitral and tricuspid valve defects, atrial septal defect (ASD), pulmonary hypertension, increase in heart rate and discharge syndrome.
