The spectrum of congenital heart disease seen in a series of 72 fetal anomalies detected echocardiographically differed from that seen in infancy. This reflects the selection of patients for referral for fetal echocardiography and the high rate of natural fetal loss that occurs when severe cardiac defects are present.

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.
Cardiac Conduction System
The cardiac conduction system is a specialized tract of myocardial cells responsible for maintaining normal cardiac rhythm. Discover the latest research on the cardiac conduction system here.
