Usefulness of live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography in the assessment of atrioventricular septal defects

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We studied nine patients (five newborns and infants, two children, and two adults) with atrioventricular septal defects (four complete, one intermediate, and four partial) utilizing live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3DTTE) and a 4-MHz matrix array transducer. In all patients, 3DTTE provided additional morphological and/or functional information as compared to standard two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2DTTE). 3DTTE may be a useful supplement to 2DTTE in the assessment of atrioventricular septal defects. © 2006, the Authors.
