Echocardiographic studies were performed on 14 patients with endocardial cushion defects of different anatomic varieties. Four patients were studied again after operation. Patients with partial atrioventricular canal (PAVC) showed multiple systolic echoes on mitral valve echogram, with significant mitral-septal apposition in diastole. The left ventricular outflow (LVO) appeared significantly narrowed. The septal motions were paradoxic. After corrective operation, an increase in the width of the… CONTINUE READING
