By G. J. Van Mill

In a comparatively brief time period two-dimensional echo cardiography has develop into crucial non-invasive diagnostic instrument within the day-by-day perform of a pediatric heart specialist who predominantly offers with congenital structural middle affliction in neonates and babies. hence, one-dimensional M-mode echocardiography has misplaced such a lot of its significance really during this box. consequently, an atlas displaying solely two-dimensional echocardiograms of the commonest and a few much less usually taking place malformations seemed to be an invaluable addition to the prevailing literature. The confinement to 2­ dimensional imaging on my own allowed an complicated presentation of some of the defects with greater than two hundred chosen nonetheless frames and plenty of extra explanatory drawings and diagrams. the cloth used to be amassed from sufferers who have been noted the dep. of Pediatric Cardiology of the Wilhelmina college kid's health center in Utrecht in the course of a interval of approximately 2 years. The two-dimensional echocardiographic findings have been correlated with cardiac catheterization facts and/or surgeries and/or submit­ mortem investigations. the mandatory echocardiographic apparatus used to be aquired with monetary reduction from the Dutch middle starting place. we're indebted to Mrs. J. W. Wetselaar for her striking art. We additionally thank P. D. Woltema and F. J. van Waert for the photographic reproductions, Jacomine Bosma for getting ready and type-setting the complete manuscript and Dr. N. Middleton for severely analyzing the English textual content. G.

Sample text

If there is chordal insertion of the anterior bridging leaflet into the crest of the interventricular septum the defect is referred to as Rastelli type A (6). The posterior bridging leaflet is always connected by the chordae to the posterior part of the interventricular septum. 7. The atrioventricular valves are shown in an open position. If one considers the valves in a closed position it will be appreciated that the posterior bridging leaflet with its chordal insertions into the posterior septum can readily be visualized in the subcostal or the apical four chamber planes.

10). A left ventricular echocontrast injection may be necessary to determine the presence or absence of such a communication. 11. The left ventricular echocontrast injection revealed hardly any communication beneath the posterior bridging leaflet. 12 shows a marked L-R shunt beneath the anterior bridging leaflet. 13.
