When the heart or blood vessels near the heart do not develop normally before birth, a condition called congenital heart defect occurs (congenital means "inborn" or "existing at birth"). Congenital heart defects occur in aboutâ eightâ of every 1,000 infants. More than 1,000,000 adults in the u. S. Have congenital heart disease. Many young people with congenital heart defects are living into adulthood now. In most cases, the cause is unknown. Sometimes a viral infection or hereditary causes the condition. Some congenital heart defects are the result of too much alcohol or drug use during pregnancy. Most heart defects either cause an abnormal blood flow through the heart, or obstruct blood flow in the heart or vessels (obstructions are called stenoses and can occur in heart valves, arteries, or veins). Rarely, defects include those in which: the right or left side of the heart is incompletely formed and is called hypoplastic heart. Only one ventricle is present. Both the pulmonary artery and aorta arise from the same ventricle. The pulmonary artery and aorta arise from the "wrong" ventricles. â  types of congenital heart defects there are many disorders of the heart that require clinical care by aâ doctor or other health care professional. Listed below are some of the conditions, for which we have provided a brief overview. Obstructiveâ defects: aortic stenosis (as). In this condition, the aortic valve between the left ventricle and the aorta did not form properly and is narrowed, making it difficult for the heart to pump blood to the body. A normal valve has three leaflets or cusps, but a stenotic valve may have only one cusp (unicuspid) or two cusps (bicuspid). In some children, chest pain, unusual tiring, dizziness or fainting may occur. Otherwise, most children with aortic stenosis have no symptoms. But, even mild stenosis may worsen over time, and surgery may be needed to correct the blockage or the valve may need to be replaced with an artificial one. viagra without a doctor prescription viagra for sale cheap viagra buy cheap viagra buy viagra online viagra without a doctor prescription sale of viagra cheap viagra online usa Pulmonary stenosis (ps). The pulmonary, or pulmonic, valve, located between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery, opens to allow blood to flow from the right ventricle to the lungs.

It involved cutting a zig-zag staircase into a cliff face and became a very popular walking trail.   Learn more

Restoring the Trail

After 95 years service, the track had to be closed in 2002. Bushfires, rain storms and landslides played havoc with fencing and wooden bridges. The $1.5 million restoration project won a National Trust award.   Learn more
