Abstract

The reported prenatal detection rates (PDRs) for significant congenital heart disease (sCHD) have been suboptimal, even in the current era. Changes in prenatal ultrasound policy and training may lead to improved prenatal detection of sCHD. This study analyzed the results of a policy to assess fetal cardiac outflow tracts shown by screening prenatal ultrasound using the electronic medical record (EMR). During a 6-year period, fetuses and patients younger than 1 year with sCHD were identified. The EMR was used to gather detection and outcome data. As an internal control within the same health care system, the PDR of only the surgical cases was compared with that of a similar group in which documentation of the fetal cardiac outflow tracts was not standard policy. Among 25,666 births, sCHD was identified in 93 fetuses or patients, yielding an incidence of 3.6 per 1,000 births. The PDR was 74.1%. Detection after birth but before discharge was 20.4%, and detection after discharge was 5.4%. A significant improvement in the PDR of sCHD was found when a concerted effort was made to obtain fetal cardiac outflow tract views during pregnancy screening (59.3 vs. 28%). Within an integrated health care system and with the use of an EMR, a PD...Continue Reading
