Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The importance of extracardiac anomalies in 100 consecutive fetuses with congenital heart disease was evaluated. The most common cardiac diagnoses were hypoplastic left heart syndrome in 35% and atrioventricular canal defect in 15%. Extracardiac anomalies were present in 42%, abnormal karyotype in 19% and intrauterine growth retardation in 20%. There were 45 survivors (35 required neonatal surgery, ten did not require early surgery) and 80% (36/45) of the survivors had isolated congenital heart disease. Extracardiac anomalies and abnormal karyotype were more frequently present in non-survivors (p < 0.001). Also, intrauterine growth retardation was more frequent in non-survivors (p < 0.05).
