Abstract

Objectives: (1) To evaluate the detection and accuracy of fetal echocardiography for congenital heart defects (CHD). (2) To compare the detection andaccuracy of a team of maternal fetal medicine specialists and radiologists(MFM/R) with those of perinatal cardiologists (PC). Methods: All fetal echocardiograms performed from 1/91 to 6/95 were reviewed retrospectively. CHDdiagnoses made prenatally were compared with postnatally-confirmed diagnoses. Results: 106 heat defects were correctly detected prenatally. There were 10 incorrect diagnoses, 6 false-negatives and 4 false-positives. Overall detection rate (sensitivity) was 95%, while overall accuracy was 87%. Detection rate for MFM/R and PC were 91 and 97%, respectively (p = 0.4). Accuracy was 74% for MFM/R and 92% for PC (p = 0.02). Conclusions: CHD can be identified reliably by prenatal echocardiography. The involvement of a PC in the prenatal diagnosis of these defects may improve diagnostic accuracy. Copyright (C) 2001 S. Karger AG, Basel.
