Abstract

Introduction Congenital heart diseases are the most common prenatal and postnatal malformations. Nowadays, fet al echocardiography is a widely practiced technique; however, the impact of prenatal diagnosis on prognosis of the newborns affected by congenital heart disease remains uncertain. Objective To assess the outcome and the changes in the spectrum of prenatally detected congenital heart disease in our tertiary care centre in 12 years of activity (1995-2006). Methods and results We detected 705 congenital heart diseases: 32% (223) were associated with extracardiac or chromosomal anomalies or both, and 68% (482) were isolated. Termination of pregnancy was chosen in 81% for associated anomalies and 37% for isolated anomalies (P
