OBJECTIVES To review the fetal echocardiograms of patients with total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) in order to determine whether the distance between the left atrium and the descending aorta would be useful in the prenatal diagnosis of fetal TAPVC. METHODS We reviewed the fetal echocardiograms of eight cases of TAPVC (five supracardiac(More)
Internal hernia through a mesenteric defect, called mesenteric hernia, is an uncommon cause of acute intestinal obstruction in newborns. Strangulated mesenteric hernia results in intestinal necrosis or perforation and progressive deterioration with fatal outcome, especially when it occurs in low-birthweight infants. We report two very low-birthweight (VLBW)(More)
Double aortic arch (DAA) is a form of vascular ring found in approximately 1 in 2000–4000 pregnancies on fetal echocardiography. In some cases of DAA, respiratory compromise occurs during infancy due to compression of the trachea, which is completely encircled by the right aortic arch (RAA) and left aortic arch (LAA). RAA and left arterial duct were(More)
Complete congenital heart block (CCHB) accompanied with neonatal lupus erythematosus is caused by an immune reaction between maternal anti-Ro/SSA antibodies and the fetal heart and is generally considered an irreversible process. This reaction mostly occurs before 30 weeks' gestation, especially between the 20th and 24th week. Reported here is an atypical(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to clarify the outcome of patients with cardiovascular malformation (CVM) among those with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) who are indicated for the Fontan procedure. METHODS The subjects included 76 CDH patients with CVM recruited from a national survey of 614 CDH patients. The outcomes were evaluated between(More)
