In a comparatively brief time period two-dimensional echo cardiography has turn into crucial non-invasive diagnostic software within the day-by-day perform of a pediatric heart specialist who predominantly bargains with congenital structural center illness in neonates and babies. as a result, one-dimensional M-mode echocardiography has misplaced so much of its significance quite during this box. accordingly, an atlas displaying solely two-dimensional echocardiograms of the commonest and a few much less usually happening malformations an invaluable addition to the prevailing literature. The confinement to 2 dimensional imaging by myself allowed an complicated presentation of a few of the defects with greater than 2 hundred chosen nonetheless frames and lots of extra explanatory drawings and diagrams. the cloth used to be amassed from sufferers who have been stated the dep. of Pediatric Cardiology of the Wilhelmina college kid's medical institution 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 submit mortem investigations. the mandatory echocardiographic gear used to be aquired with monetary reduction from the Dutch middle beginning. 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 total manuscript and Dr. N. Middleton for seriously studying the English textual content. G. J. van Mill, M. D. A. J. Moulaert, M. D. E. Harinck, M. D. CONTENTS 1. creation and the conventional center advent the conventional middle 2 2.

The vectorcardiogram shows the superior orientation of the QRS loop and a counterclockwise inscription of the loop in the frontal plane. Until recently cardiac catheterization and left ventricular angiocardiography were indispensable for confirmation of the diagnosis. In atrioventricular septal defects the frontal left ventricular angiogram shows the typical 'goose neck' deformity of the left ventricular outflow tract which is primarily caused by the abnormal attachments of the mitral valve. M-mode echocardiography has been of value for the diagnosis of partial atrioventricular septal defect and also for the differentiation of the complete forms.
If these openings cannot be visualized the dorsal part of the left atrium may be confused with the common pulmonary vein into which the pulmonary veins enter in total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. The absence of a drainage vessel and the insertion of the intra-atrial membrane into the middle of the interatrial septum are indicative of cor triatriatum sinister. In complex structural heart defects interatrial communication may be imperative to maintain haemodynamic stability. For instance, an interatrial communication is an integral part of tricuspid atresia.
