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 middle affliction in neonates and babies. hence, one-dimensional M-mode echocardiography has misplaced such a lot of its value relatively during this box. for this reason, an atlas displaying completely two-dimensional echocardiograms of the commonest and a few much less usually taking place malformations looked to be an invaluable addition to the prevailing literature. The confinement to 2­ dimensional imaging by myself allowed an intricate presentation of some of the defects with greater than 2 hundred chosen nonetheless frames and lots of extra explanatory drawings and diagrams. the fabric used to be accrued from sufferers who have been mentioned the dep. of Pediatric Cardiology of the Wilhelmina college kid's health facility in Utrecht in the course of a interval of approximately 2 years. The two-dimensional echocardiographic findings have been correlated with cardiac catheterization information and/or surgeries and/or publish­ mortem investigations. the required echocardiographic gear was once aquired with monetary relief from the Dutch middle origin. we're indebted to Mrs. J. W. Wetselaar for her awesome 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 full manuscript and Dr. N. Middleton for severely examining the English textual content. G. J. van Mill, M. D. A. J. Moulaert, M. D. E. Harinck, M. D. CONTENTS 1. creation and the traditional center advent the conventional center 2 2.

Sample text

Muscuhr trabecular ventricular septal defect The trabecular ventricular septal defect is situated in the trabecular part of the interventricular septum adjoining the inlet portion. 11. The long axis view exhibits a large anteriorly and apically located septal deficiency. In the short axis view the posterior part of the interventricular septum is intact. The defect is localized in the anterior trabecular portion where it joins the inlet septum. In the subcostal longitudinal view and the subcostal four chamber view (not exhibited here) the membranous septum and the inlet septum were clearly intact.

11. Two-dimensional echocardiograms of a patient with a defect in the trabecular part of the interventricular septum. Arrows indicate the site of the septal deficiency. LV= left ventricle, RVOT= right ventricular outflow tract, LA= left atrium, Ao= aorta, RV= right ventricle. 12. Two-dimensional echocardiograms showing a left ventricular echocontrast injection in a patient with trabecular ventricular septal defect. 13. ot-Iike ventricular septal defect. ortic septal deficiency. ortic wall, IVS = interventricular septum, mv = mitral valve.

1. Diagrammatic representation of the matching cross-sectional planes showing the different components of the interventricular septum. The subcostal longitudinal view (a) exhibits the membranous septum and the transition zone between the inlet and trabecular septa. The four chamber view (b) only shows the muscular inlet septum. The small part between the attachments of the tricuspid and mitral valves is the atrioventricular septum. In the parasternal long axis view (c) and the parasternal sagittal view through the pulmonary artery (d) the trabecular and outlet septa are visualized.
