1. Normal heart
2. Truncus arteriosus - division between the pulmonary trunk and the aorta did not form
3. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome - left ventricle underdeveloped, not functional, mitral valve atresia, narrowing of the aorta
4. d-Transposition of the great arteries - the two vessels leading out of the heart are switched, creating two separate ‘circuits’ so that most of the blood cannot reach the lungs
I have one more to finish up, tetralogy of Fallot. One more day should do it. Otherwise, I still have a couple of things to fix in these (textures, valve insertion stuff, etc.). I’m toying with the idea of doing a second series – basically these, but just line, maybe thumbnail images to show the circulation in each case. It was really important to me not to color the vessels (blue/red/purple) for the sake of naturalism, but the circulation is important to understanding the diseases.
I wish I had all the time in the world to do more and to make them look less similar, but I graduated in December, and life happened.
PLEASE comment or message me if you spot any inaccuracies or stuff I should emphasize more. Any feedback at all is welcome and appreciated.
