Neonatal And Pediatric Echocardiography

Echocardiograms are used in Pediatric Echocardiography which creates a moving picture of the heart using sound waves in a non-invasive test. This test is done to evaluate and diagnose many heart conditions.

There are many forms in which Echocardiography is known such as cardiac ultrasound or ultrasonography, cardiac Doppler, echo or transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). To assess the structure and function of the heart.

Device Closure –
ASD

ASDs account for 7% of all congenital heart defects. The most common ADS is a secundum defect versus defects located in the septum primum, sinus venosus defects, or unroofed coronary sinus.

Transcatheter secundum ASD Closure is indicated in patients with hemodynamically significant ASD with suitable anatomic features (Level of Evidence: B).

Pediatric And Adult Transesophageal Echocardiography

 

TEE is the short form for Transesophageal echocardiography and it is also called as endoscopic cardiac. TEE evaluates the heart and blood vessels within the chest using a small endoscopic like cardiac ultrasound probe guided into the Transesophageal

Pediatric And adult Transesophageal Echocardiography are used to:

  •  To evaluate ASD Anatomy, Heart Defects like ASD, Post Infant, BSDs and prior to surgical intervention

Device Closure – VSD

VSDs account for =20% of all forms of CHD. The ventricular septum can be divided into 4 regions: Membranous, inlet, trabecular, and outlet. VSDs can be single in any of the mentioned regions or multiple (“Swiss Cheese”) in the muscular part of the septum.

It is reasonable for infants who weigh >= 5 Kg, children, and adolescents with hemodynamically significant (left ventricular or left atrial volume overload or pulmonary-to-systemic blood flow ratio >=2:1) MVSD to undergo percutaneous VSD device closure (Level of Evidence: B)
