Diagnosis and prognosis in double-outlet right ventricle.

The aim of this study was to examine prenatal diagnosis of double-outlet right ventricle (DORV)-associated anomalies and prognosis of each case. Medical records were reviewed of fetuses with DORV who had fetal echocardiography at our institution from 2002 to 2006. Pre- and postnatal diagnosis and outcome were compared and evaluated. Twenty-one fetuses were diagnosed with DORV. The pregnancy was terminated in seven cases. Three cases had chromosomal abnormalities; three cases, hypoplastic left ventricle; and one case, encephalocele. Accurate prenatal diagnosis of the ventricular septal defect, outflow obstruction, and great artery relationship was achieved in 14 of 16 cases (87.5%). Only 2 of 13 live-born cases survived beyond 6 months. The overall prognosis for fetuses with DORV is poor. DORV is found in fetuses with a huge spectrum of associated cardiac and extracardiac anomalies. Careful assessment by fetal echocardiography can determine important anatomic details with adequate correctness for precise counseling.
