Abstract

The value of prenatal diagnosis of major congenital heart diseases (CHDs) has already been proved. In this study, we observed the evolution of the detection rate of CHDs and the quality of the diagnoses over a 15-year period in the Indre-et-Loire department of France. Retrospective analysis of the quantitative and qualitative data of prenatal diagnosis between 2000 and 2005 (period 3) and comparison with studies conducted from 1991 to 1994 (period 1) and from 1995 to 1999 (period 2). The CHDs considered to be detectable are the major CHDs with neonatal symptoms. In order to analyze the quality of prenatal diagnosis, each diagnosis was classified as correct, false, or incomplete during period 3. Period 3: 65.7% detectable CHDs were screened. Using period 1 criteria for prenatal diagnosis, the percentage of CHDs detected for periods 1, 2, and 3 was 43.2, 66.7, and 78%, respectively. Between periods 2 and 3, the detection rate increased from 52 to 74% for CHDs diagnosed with the visualization of the outflow tract. It increased from 63 to 71% for CHDs diagnosed with a four-chamber view. During period 3, diagnoses made by a pediatric cardiologist were correct and complete in 80% of cases. It was less than 25% otherwise. The improvem...Continue Reading
