Overview

Levocardia is a medical condition where the heart is on the correct side of the body (the left), but the related structures are on the wrong side, either due to corrected transposition of the great vessels or to situs inversus.

The term "levocardia" can also be used to indicate the absence of dextrocardia, and thus normal positioning of the heart -- part of situs solitus, normal positioning of the organs. However, this usage is less frequent.
