Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital heart malformation. It refers to a connection between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk before bifurcation. We report a case of APW that was detected by prenatal fetal echocardiography. The diagnosis was confirmed postnatally with an additional partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection. Corrective surgery was performed at the age of 1 week. Prenatal diagnosis of APW is important because an operation early after birth is required to prevent congestive heart failure due to high pulmonary blood flow. It is essential to visualize the aortopulmonary septum during fetal echocardiographic examination. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2011.
