Prenatal diagnosis of fetal atrioventricular heart block

I. Huluță, A.M. Panaitescu, G. Peltecu, C. Gică, R. Botezatu, N. Gică


Rezumat: Fetal atrioventricular heart block (FAVB) is the most commonly observed type of fetal bradycardia, and is potentially life-threatening. This condition occurs when there is a blockage in the electrical pathway between the atria and the ventricles of the heart, which can cause the heart to beat too slow or irregularly. This can lead to a range of complications, including heart failure, stroke and even death. This paper presents some interesting pictures of FAVB in cases associated with autoimmune diseases and also some normal recordings in the hope of a better understanding of this condition. We intend to provide some usefully visual information for clinicians involved in the management of fetal cardiovascular disorder. The correct diagnosis using the right ultrasound tools and the referral for an echocardiography are key factors for a proper management of this condition.
Cuvinte cheie: fetal atrioventricular heart block, prenatal diagnosis, causes, fetal echocardiography, M-mode.
