BACKGROUND This study was designed to determine if vertically transmitted HIV infection and maternal infection with HIV are associated with altered cardiovascular structure and function in utero. METHODS Fetal echocardiography was performed in 173 fetuses of 169 HIV-infected mothers (mean gestational age, 33.0 weeks; SD = 3.7 weeks) at 5 centers. Biparietal diameter, femur length, cardiovascular dimensions, and Doppler velocities through atrioventricular and semilunar valves and the umbilical… CONTINUE READING
