Japanese term or phrase: 左右の短絡
臨床においても**左右の短絡**を伴なった心奇形、弁膜疾患、慢性肺疾患などでは顕著な右心肥大を伴なってくる場合が多く。。。

In this case, "左右の短絡" means "右左心短絡"、"右左心内短絡”、"右左短絡", or "右ー左短絡(reversed shunt?)?

What would be the right way to translate "左右の短絡" here?

TIA

left-to-right shunt
Explanation:
Aki,

Here is some information for you. In your source term, you put 左右の短絡 so I would say it ought to be a "left-to-right shunt" in this case.

Please check out the sites below for detailed descriptions:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shunt_(medical)

In medicine, a shunt is a hole or passage which moves, or allows movement of, fluid from one part of the body to another. The term may describe either congenital or acquired shunts; and acquired shunts (sometimes referred to as iatrogenic shunts) may be either biological or mechanical.

Cardiac shunts may be described as right-to-left, left-to-right or bidirectional.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bidirectional_shunt

A bidirectional shunt is a cardiac shunt which allows, or is designed to cause, blood to flow freely between the right heart and the left heart. This occurs when:
1. there is an opening or passage between the atria, ventricles, and/or great vessels; and,
2. right and left heart pressures are approximately equal.

Aki,
What I read directly in your source term is "left-to-right shunt."

But it could also mean "bidirectional shunt" rather than "reversed shunt."

Thank you, Aki-san! That is so kind of you to offer to send me some skin peel. But, don't worry about it. Your offer was a wonderful enough surprise. :-)
By the way, I squeezed the juice of lemon directly on my face yesterday. (I read this tip in a book my brother bought me) and it really makes the skin feel smooth and great, too! And, it smells nice. (It's funny to be writing about this in Pro-Z) :-)
