INTRODUCTION To present the characteristics and spectrum of associated anomalies in right- and left-sided isomerism in our local population and to assess the possibility of using stomach-distance ratio (SDR) of less than 0.34 as a diagnostic tool to predict right atrial isomerism. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective study of fetuses in our department over a period of 8 years with postnatally confirmed prenatal diagnosis of atrial isomerism. RESULTS In 22 cases, atrial isomerism… CONTINUE READING
