Atrioventricular valve regurgitation (AVVR) is a clinically important element of the common atrioventricular canal defect. Cardiac preload and afterload increase from prenatal to postnatal life. These hemodynamic changes may increase the degree of regurgitation and affect management and prognosis. We sought to investigate the frequency of change in degree(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is the gold standard for the quantification of global and regional myocardial function and can detect subclinical myocardial dysfunction in anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy. The aim of this study was to ascertain reliable echocardiographic parameters that can be used for the early identification of(More)
Purpose Current guidelines recommend that patients with CHD receive age-appropriate counselling on reproduction, pregnancy, and risk of heredity. Our aim was to examine patient knowledge of reproductive health and explore the association between patient knowledge of CHD transmission risk and earlier physician counselling in adults with CHD. METHODS We(More)
Prenatal heart disease spans the spectrum of severity from very mild to severe life-threatening conditions. An accepted scale for grading fetal cardiovascular disease severity would aid in anomaly standardization, counseling, and future research. The Fetal Cardiovascular Disease Severity Scale with seven severity grades ranging from mild (grade 1) to severe(More)
Atrioventricular valve regurgitation (AVVR) influences morbidity and mortality in the atrioventricular canal defect (AVC). Fetal cardiac structures are subject to hemodynamic changes, as well as growth and maturation during gestation, which may alter the degree of AVVR and affect prognosis. We sought to investigate the frequency of change in degree of AVVR(More)
