Clinical Information
  • A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the thorax instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted heart atria, a right-sided stomach, and a left-sided liver, the combination is called dextrocardia with situs inversus. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.
  • A rare congenital abnormality in which the heart is located in the right side of the chest. It is associated with other congenital heart defects.
