Prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart disease

Pediatric Clinics of North America
Pei-Ni Jone, Kenneth O Schowengerdt


This article presents advancements in the field of fetal echocardiography and the significant impact of these within the fields of pediatric cardiology, perinatology, and neonatology. A prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart disease allows for improved counseling of the parents, guides the timing and optimal location of delivery, and allows appropriate planning and consultation between the cardiologist and neonatologist. It also facilitates accurate diagnosis and management of fetal arrhythmias, identifies potential candidates for in utero cardiac intervention, and serves as the imaging guidance technique for these procedures. The goals, indications, advantages, limitations, and spectrum of congenital heart disease that can be diagnosed are reviewed.
