BACKGROUND Precise diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias in the fetus is crucial for a managed therapeutic approach. However, many technical, positional, and gestational age-related limitations may render conventional methods, such as M-mode and Doppler flow methodologies, or newer techniques, such as fetal electrocardiography or magnetocardiography, difficult(More)
Myocardial bridging (MB) is a rare coronary anomaly in children that is typically associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or left ventricular hypertrophy. Several reports, mainly in adults, have suggested an association between MB and sudden death or ischemia without other cardiac abnormalities. In this report, we describe an 11-year-old girl with(More)
The laterality in the embryo is determined by left-right asymmetric gene expression driven by the flow of extraembryonic fluid, which is maintained by the rotary movement of monocilia on the nodal cells. Defects manifest by abnormal formation and arrangement of visceral organs. The genetic etiology of defects not associated with primary ciliary dyskinesia(More)
We describe a newborn who underwent balloon dilatation of critical aortic stenosis and surgical correction of coarctation of the aorta. Postoperative Doppler echocardiogram revealed diastolic retrograde flow in the distal aortic arch and increased systolic flow as well as diastolic forward flow in the left common carotid artery. Cranial computed tomography(More)
