Prospective diagnosis of 1,006 consecutive cases of congenital heart disease in the fetus.
This report describes our experience with fetal congenial heart disease since 1980.
Knowledge and expertise in the diagnosis, management and natural history of fetal congenital heart disease is increasingly demanded by both obstetricians and parents.
The analysis of a large series should help the pediatric cardiologist to provide this service.
The notes of 1,006 patients, where a prospective diagnosis of fetal congenial heart disease was made, were reviewed.
The reason for referral, the diagnosis made, the accuracy of diagnosis, the fetal karyotype and the outcome of the pregnancy were noted.
The cases were grouped into malformation categories, and the spectrum of disease seen was compared with that found in infants.
