OBJECTIVE Multiplanar re-formatting of full-volume three-dimensional echocardiography data sets offers new insights into the morphology of atrioventricular septal defects. We hypothesised that distortion of the alignment between the atrial and ventricular septums results in imbalanced venous return to the ventricles, with consequent proportional ventricular hypoplasia. METHODS A single observer evaluated 31 patients, with a mean age of 52.09 months, standard deviation of 55, and with a range… CONTINUE READING
