Abstract

This study evaluates the accuracy of fetal echocardiograms in terms of anatomic diagnosis and predicted neonatal management over a 7-year period. Although an abnormal fetal echocardiogram is a highly reliable predictor of postnatal structural heart defects, challenges persist in the areas of conotruncal malformations, aortic arch, and pulmonary venous anomalies.
