rare ventricular septal defect

I'm trying to find out about a rare type of ventricular septal defect called physmanoxic ventricular. I really need to find out anything I can about it as my boyfriend is claiming he has this. I can't find anything about it anywhere and a lot of things he has said don't add up or make sense. I need to know if he's lying or not, really don't want to believe he is

Never heard of it. What details has he given about the condition?

that its an extra tube on his heart, its really rare but runs in his family, causes him to have fits. They don't seem to know much about it

I don't believe such a condition exists, I've certainly never heard of it. It runs in the family, yet they don't know much about it? that's very odd in itself. The natural thing when you have any condition is to WANT to find out more and understand it. I'm sure someone in the family would have had an in depth discussion with an expert. Is the spelling of the condition correct?

thats the spelling i got from one of his nurses last time he was in hospital, she supposedly texts me when he's in to keep me updated.  thanks for the help, do you know anywhere i could look to find out for certain if it exists?
