To evaluate the effects of gestational age on left and right ventricular diastolic filling in human fetuses, we retrospectively reviewed the diastolic flow velocity patterns through mitral and tricuspid valves in 307 normal fetuses aged 17 to 39 weeks' gestation. The subjects were divided into 3 age groups; 17 to 24 weeks, 25 to 31 weeks, and 32 to 39 weeks. The variables measured were peak flow velocities of early diastole (peak E wave), of atrial contraction (peak A wave), and the velocity… CONTINUE READING
