Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fetal echocardiography has proved a useful tool for prenatal detection of cardiac lesions and the diagnosis--and, in some cases, the treatment--of fetal arrhythmias. It is particularly indicated for mothers from high risk groups. Management of diagnosed heart disease leads either to termination of pregnancy or to optimal postnatal care for the baby and the mother.
