The impact of fetal echocardiography on perinatal outcome

Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology
J A Copel, C S Kleinman


Fetal echocardiograms were performed in 266 gravidae over a one-year period for a variety of previously identified indications. The largest group consisted of 112 patients referred because of other family members with congenital heart disease (CHD). Of these, only one fetus had CHD. The groups with the highest incidence of CHD were those suspected on general obstetrical scan to have structural cardiac disease (50% abnormal) and those scanned after extracardiac anomalies were found (26% abnormals). Forty rhythm abnormalities were encountered, 85% isolated premature atrial extra-systoles. We conclude that fetal echocardiography should be part of the prenatal evaluation of fetuses with extracardiac anomalies and of those with nonimmune hydrops. Any fetus suspected to have an abnormality of cardiac structure from the four-chamber view of the heart usually visualized while obtaining the abdominal circumference should also be evaluated.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

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.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
