OBJECTIVE To compare ventricular long axis function in fetuses of diabetic mothers (FDM) with contemporaneously studied normal controls (N) and to assess the effect of pre-pregnancy diabetic control on these measurements. DESIGN Long axis function was compared in 41 FDM and 159 N fetuses in a cross sectional observational study. SETTING Fetal medicine unit. METHODS AND RESULTS Echocardiography confirmed structural normality. Pulsed wave valvar Doppler velocimetry, lengthening and… CONTINUE READING
