In a comparatively brief time period two-dimensional echo cardiography has turn into crucial non-invasive diagnostic instrument within the day-by-day perform of a pediatric heart specialist who predominantly offers with congenital structural center affliction in neonates and babies. as a result, one-dimensional M-mode echocardiography has misplaced so much of its significance really during this box. for that reason, an atlas exhibiting solely two-dimensional echocardiograms of the most typical and a few much less often taking place malformations looked to be an invaluable addition to the prevailing literature. The confinement to 2­ dimensional imaging by myself allowed an complicated presentation of a number of the defects with greater than two hundred chosen nonetheless frames and lots of extra explanatory drawings and diagrams. the fabric used to be amassed from sufferers who have been mentioned the dep. of Pediatric Cardiology of the Wilhelmina collage kid's medical institution in Utrecht in the course of a interval of approximately 2 years. The two-dimensional echocardiographic findings have been correlated with cardiac catheterization info and/or surgeries and/or put up­ mortem investigations. the required echocardiographic apparatus used to be aquired with monetary relief from the Dutch middle beginning. we're indebted to Mrs. J. W. Wetselaar for her striking paintings. We additionally thank P. D. Woltema and F. J. van Waert for the photographic reproductions, Jacomine Bosma for getting ready and type-setting the full manuscript and Dr. N. Middleton for seriously interpreting the English textual content. G.

Example text

7). Assessment of the abnormal site of drainage of the pulmonary veins in total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage should be possible (7, 8). In this respect Smallhorn and associates (8) stress the importance of the suprasternal approach. 8. Multiple parasternal views and a subcostal frontal view portray the abnormal course of the pulmonary venous channel to the superior vena cava. Total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage must be distinguished from cor triatriatum sinister. In the latter condition the pulmonary veins drain directly into the dorsal region of the left atrium.

The subcostal view clearly demonstrates that the posterior bridging leaflet is inserted by chordae into the right side of the crest of the interventricular septum and also into a robust papillary muscle which is situated next to the interventricular sep- 55 tum. The parasternal view shows the absence of shunt beneath the anterior bridging leaflet. The apical four chamber view of a complete connections between the anterior bridging leaflet and the crest of the anterior part of the interven- atrioventricular septal defect after surgical repair is tricular septum.
