The prognosis for an individual with Situs Inversus Totalis is good. In the absence of a heart defect or other underlying diagnosis, the life expectancy is normal.
There is no treatment for Situs Inversus Totalis. However, there are many medicines available to help treat Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia and the other long-term effects. In addition, there is no method of preventing Situs Inverus Totalis, as it occurs at birth.
Most people with Situs Inversus Totalis have no medical symptoms or complications resulting from the condition. Only 3-5% of people with Situs Inversus have any type of functional heart defect.
