Pulmonary valves agenesis

Common Name(s)

Pulmonary valves agenesis

Pulmonary valves agenesis, also known as absent pulmonary valve is a rare defect in which the pulmonary valve, through which blood flows from the heart to the lungs (where it picks up oxygen) is either missing or poorly formed. This condition is present at birth (congenital). It is often associated with other malformations. Severity is variable.

Pulmonary valves agenesis also results in much enlarged (dilated) lung branch arteries (the arteries that carry blood to the lungs). They can become so enlarged that they press on the tubes that bring air to the lungs (bronchi) and cause breathing problems.
