Current concepts in fetal cardiovascular disease

Clinics in Perinatology
Anita Szwast, J Rychik

Abstract

This article discusses the unique properties of the fetal cardiovascular system and patterns of blood flow in congenital heart disease. It also explores the complex interactive dependency between the developing heart and pulmonary vasculature, with particular attention to hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The article goes on to highlight some recent advances in the understanding of fetal cardiovascular medicine, specifically the possibilities and prognosis for fetal cardiac interventions. An understanding of the enigmatic process of twin-twin transfusion syndrome may help in elucidating one of the mechanisms for development of cardiac structural abnormalities in the fetus.

Cardiovascular Disease Pathophysiology

Cardiovascular disease involves several different processes that contribute to the pathological mechanism, including hyperglycemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension and more. Vasculature stability plays a critical role in the development of the disease. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular disease pathophysiology here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
