Impact of fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease on parents
Eun Young Choi, Chang Hoon Lee, Myung Ja Yoon, Eun Sook Han, Joon Suk Hong, Yun Sook Jung, Jung Yun Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(10):1073-1078.   Published online October 15, 2006
Purpose : This study was performed to assess how a fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease affects parents, as regards pregnancy management and care of infants after birth. Methods : Database search to find out abnormal fetal echocardiography performed at Seoul National University Children's Hospital from July 1988 to June 2003 revealed 370 examinations. After excluding both arrhythmias without structural cardiac...

A Case of Neonatal Atrial Flutter Treated by Propafenone after Fetal Echocardiographic Diagnosis
Kyung Hwa Lee, Chang Woo Ha, Chul Ho Kim, Min Seob Song, Moon Su Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(7):928-932.   Published online July 15, 2002
Perinatal atrial flutter is a potentially lethal arrhythmia. Management of this disorder is difficult and controversial. Fetal atrial flutter is a serious and life threatening rhythm disorder particulary when it causes hydrops; it may be associated with fetal death or neurological damage. Although the initial episode of flutter may be difficult to control, recurrence of atrial flutter after successful resolution...
A False Diagnosis of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome in a Fetus
Youn Jeong Shin, Sung Hee Jang, Jung Yun Choi, Eun Sook Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(2):267-272.   Published online February 15, 2002
Typical hypoplastic left heart syndrome(HLHS) is a distinct pathologic entity with aortic atresia, mitral atresia, very hypoplastic or absent left ventricle and thread like ascending aorta. Occasionally, the lesser degree of hypoplasia is found and is called hypoplastic left heart complex(HLHC) by some authors. This HLHC is often associated with critical aortic stenosis. Fetal echocardiography has enabled us to observe...

Clinical Efficacy of Selective Fetal Echocardiography
Su Young Hong, Ji Eun Ban, Young Seok Lee, Hyoung Doo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(10):1127-1134.   Published online October 15, 2001
Purpose : The aims of this study was to assess the indication, diagnostic, accuracy and prognostic influence of fetal echocardiography. Methods : From 1995 to 1999, 283 pregnancies were evaluated with fetal echocardiography at Dong-A University Hospital. We reviewed medical records included indication, fetal echocardiographic findings, postnatal echocardiographic findings, methods of treatment and outcome of prenataly diagnosed patients. Results : Family...

A Case of Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava Detected on Fetal Echocardiography
Jin Lee, Young-Yoo Kim, Youn-Soo Lee, Jong-Chul Shin, Jong-Wan Kim, Chung-Sik Chun, Kyung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(11):1604-1609.   Published online November 15, 1999
We experienced a case of persistent left superior vena cava draining into the common atrium in a fetus of 26-year-old primigravida. Persistent left superior vena cava is derived from the left cardinal vein. This anomalous vessel usually drains into the right atrium via the coronary sinus and has no physiologic significance. Much less frequently, the left superior vena cava drains...

Estimating Fetal Cardiac Output by Doppler Echocardiography
Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(2):203-210.   Published online February 15, 1999
Purpose : Doppler echocardiography has been used to identify fetal cardiac anatomy and hemodynamics. It can estimate flow velocity, volume, and cardiac output. The purposes of this study were to estimate right and left ventricular stroke volume and cardiac output in fetus, and to see if there were any changes of right and left ventricular parameter with fetal growth. Methods :...
Cardiovascular Doppler Flow Waveforms in Human Fetuses
Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(12):1639-1649.   Published online December 15, 1998
Purpose : Doppler echocardiography has been used to identify fetal cardiac anatomy and hemodynamics. It can estimate flow velocity, volume, and cardiac output. The purpose of this study was to look at cardiovascular waveforms in fetus and to see if there were any changes in Doppler parameter with fetal growth. Methods : Blood velocity studies were performed across the mitral, tricuspid,...

One Case of Congenital Complete Atrioventricular Block Diagnosed by Fetal Echocardiography
Eun Jung Kim, Tae Hoon Kang, Hyoung Doo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(4):567-571.   Published online April 15, 1997
Congenital complete atrioventicular block is uncommon which has a heterogenous etiology. According to recent studies, about one-third of the mothers of the patients who were diagnosed as congenital complete atrioventricular block, had symptoms or signs of connective tissue disease. Even though the outlook is usually regarded as favorable, the mortality is highest in the neonatal period, much lower during childhood...

Fetal Cardiac Malformation : types and associated anomalies
Ho Sung Kim, Jeong Wook Seo, Chung Il Noh, Jung Yun Choi, Yong Soo Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(6):811-818.   Published online June 15, 1995
Purpose : The relative incidence of fetal cardiac anomalies and associated extracardiac anomalies in Korean fetuses were studied. Methods : Findings in fetal echocardiography and autopsy were reviewed using 129 fetuses with cardiac anomalis detected at a gestational period under 38 weeks from 1991 Jan. to 1994 June. Results : The most common fetal cardiac anomaly was isolated atrial septal defect(28 cases...
Normal Fetal echocardiography
Seock Joong Yoon, Sung Jin Hong, Hyung Gu Cho, Jung Wan Yoo, Dong Chul Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(5):606-611.   Published online May 15, 1994
Fetal echocardiography is used by means of decleration of fetal cardiac anaxtomy, to estabilish the diagnosis of congenital heart disease in utero. We attemped fetal echocardiography to ninty three pregnant women after intra uterine period 24 weeks, and estimated cardiac circumference, cardiac axis, pulmonary atery root diameter, arortic root diameter, diameter of inferior vena cava, diameterof superior vena cava, and...
