CASE 12: USG: Fetal Echo

Fetal Echo

Findings reveal a VSD with Double OUtlet Right Ventricle (DORV).

DISCUSSION

Both the aorta and pulmonary trunk arise from the morphological right ventricle 

Always will have a concurrent VSD

Association with T13 & T18 has been described

There is side-by-side relationship of the great arteries

The linear alignment of the three vessels in the three vessels view is abnormal in most cases

 

Differentiation from other conotruncal anomalies can be very difficult, especially with tetralogy of Fallot and transposition of great arteries with ventricular septal defect.
