Anomalies of the PV and RV James C. Huhta, M.D. Perinatal Cardiology JHM-All Children’s Hospital 5th Phoenix Fetal Cardiology Symposium Wed. April 23, 2014, 4-4:30 PM
Fetal PV RV CHD Data to be Presented: CHD – PS, Tet, Tet abs valve CHF dx and Rx
Fetal PS May not have post-stenotic dilation Trace PR may be present “Dagger” Doppler pattern May increase ductal velocity by transmitted turbulence
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Tetralogy of Fallot comprises 10% of all congenital heart disease and is the most common form of cyanotic heart disease beyond infancy.
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot The embryology of Tetralogy of Fallot may be thought of simply as anterior deviation of the infundibular septum. This creates the overriding aorta, the VSD and the narrowing of the RVOT.
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Fetal echocardiography combines assessment of the cardiac situs, the anatomy and the physiology xxxxxxx
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Measurements include Doppler in the umbilical artery, middle cerebral artery, uterine artery and growth assessment of the heart and fetus. xxxxxxx
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot. Classic tetralogy of Fallot may be missed if echo examination of the fetal heart is confined to the four chamber view as it is usually normal in this condition.
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Typical findings on fetal echo include: a large size perimembranous subaortic VSD, large overriding aorta (Ao), anterior malalignment of conal septum with subpulmonary narrowing, small main pulmonary artery/ confluent branches, and RV outflow velocity of over 1.4 m /s. xxxxxxxxx
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Diagnosis of TOF should prompt referral for a thorough anatomic examination by ultrasound, amniocentesis for karyotype for chromosomal anomalies including FISH screen for chromosome 22q11 microdeletion
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Two Vessel Cord xxxxxxxxxxx
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot The perinatal outcome of fetal tetralogy of Fallot is worse than that observed for postnatally identified tetralogy of Fallot. A possible explanation is the relatively high incidence of aneuploidy and extracardiac anomalies in fetal cases
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Follow-up fetal studies should examine; growth of the pulmonary arteries, direction of ductal flow, additional ventricular septal defects, mitral valve abnormalities. Tetralogy may also be associated with left atrial isomerism Development of hydrops fetalis is uncommon in fetal tetralogy. Congestive heart failure may develop over time
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Congestive heart failure may develop if there is significant pulmonary insufficiency (so-called tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve syndrome), or the presence of a restrictive ventricular septal defect
Echocardiography in Fetal Tetralogy of Fallot Tetralogy with pulmonary stenosis (58%) tetralogy with pulmonary atresia (25%), with absent pulmonary valve syndrome (14%) with associated atrioventricular septal defect (3%)
Children’s Heart Centre Linz Determinants of Outcome in Fetal Pulmonary Valve Stenosis or Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum Kevin, Fouron, Masaki, Smallhorn, Chaturvedi, Jaeggi - Toronto / Montreal Am J Cardiol 2007;99:699-703 Prediction of a non - biventricular outcome: TV / MV ratio < 0.7 RV / LV length ratio < 0.6 TV inflow duration < 31.5% Presence of sinusoids Sensitivity: 100% Specificity: 75% If 3/4 were present:
Fetal Predictors of Postnatal 2V Repair Salvin et al. Pediatrics 2007 (Boston)
Children’s Heart Centre Linz Morphological and functional predictors of eventual circulation in the fetus with PA/IVS or critical PS Gardiner, Belmar, Tulzer et al London/Linz J Am Coll Cardiol. 2008;51:1299-30 N = 34 fetuses (15-33 weeks) - 21 liveborn < 23 weeks: –Median TV Z-score > -3.4 and PV Z-score > -1.0 < 26 weeks: –Median TV Z-score > -3.95 26 - 31 weeks: –Median PV Z-score > -2.8 + medTV:MV > 0.71 > 31 weeks: –Median TV Z-score > -3.9 + medTV:MV > 0.59
Rational for intervention in PA/IVS decompression of the RV promotion right heart growth to increase the likelihood of a biventricular repair postnatally
How to select patients? suitable anatomy (membranous atresia) exclusion of large coronary artery fistulas prediction of a univentricular outcome
Procedure technically more challenging than AS small RV atretic valve needs to be perforated
