  • Isolated situs inversus has an excellent prognosis, typically with an uneventful prenatal and postnatal course. [4] When situs inversus is associated with an underlying condition or syndrome, the prognosis may depend on that of the underlying condition[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis The prognosis for an individual with situs inversus is good, and in the absence of a heart defect or other underlying diagnosis, life expectancy is normal. Prevention There is no known method of preventing situs inversus.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • Echocardiographic detection of cardiac defect coupled with appropriate management by cardiac surgeon where available is associated with better prognosis.[afrjpaedsurg.org]
