Our objective was to determine whether abnormal loading conditions can modify human fetal right ventricular ejection force during the second half of pregnancy. By Doppler echocardiography, we studied 73 normal fetuses between 19 and 41 weeks of gestation, 27 fetuses with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (chronic volume overload) between 18 and 38 weeks of gestation, 14 fetuses with mild to moderate constriction of the ductus arteriosus (pulsatility index (PI) between 1.0 and 1.9) and seven… CONTINUE READING
