Fetal echocardiography.

Chaubal NG, Chaubal J - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: The most important objective during a targeted anomaly scan is to identify those cases that need a dedicated fetal echocardiogram.Associated truncal and chromosomal anomalies need to be identified.This review shows how fetal echocardiography, apart from identifying structural defects in the fetal heart, can be used to look at rhythm abnormalities and other functional aspects of the fetal heart.

ABSTRACT
USG performed with a high-end machine, using a good cine-loop facility is extremely helpful in the diagnosis of fetal cardiac anomalies. In fetal echocardiography, the four-chamber view and the outflow-tract view are used to diagnose cardiac anomalies. The most important objective during a targeted anomaly scan is to identify those cases that need a dedicated fetal echocardiogram. Associated truncal and chromosomal anomalies need to be identified. This review shows how fetal echocardiography, apart from identifying structural defects in the fetal heart, can be used to look at rhythm abnormalities and other functional aspects of the fetal heart.

Figure 0010: Atrioventricular septal defect. Four-chamber view shows the absent crux (arrow). RA – right atrium, LA – left arium, RV – right ventricle, LV – left ventricle

Mentions: Atrioventricular septal defect [Figure 10]: This can be a minor defect like a membranous VSD or a septum primum atrial septal defect (ASD); there could be an absent crux (popularly referred to as endocardial cushion defect); or there could be a single atrioventricular valve. All these structures have a common developmental origin: the endocardial cushion. This defect is often associated with chromosomal anomalies like trisomy 21 and single-gene disorders like Ellis-van Creveld syndrome.
