Children with triploidy die before or immediately after birth. A single extra chromosome is called a trisomy. They most often result from meiotic error. Only three autosomal trisomies are potentially viable: trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 18, and trisomy 13. All three have a high chance of being associated with heart defects. In structural chromosome abnormalities, a distinction is made between balanced and unbalanced defects. In balanced defects chromosome parts are displaced but there is no visible extra or missing chromosome material.
