Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of persistent fetal bradycardia first detected at 32 weeks of gestational age is described. The diagnosis of atrial ectopic beats was made by means of M-mode echocardiography. Since the fetus was normally grown and showed no signs of distress, the vaginal route of delivery was allowed, also because continuous M-mode echocardiographic monitoring was possible during labour.
