Case report. Longitudinal Echo Monitoring in Fetus with Phenotypical Marfan Syndrome, Helpfull for Perinatal Management - Case Presentation and Literature Review

Abstract

It was the second pregnancy of an otherwise healthy married couple. The fetus (male) had detailed echocardiography monitoring in the second half of the pregnancy due to progression of cardiomegaly, and echocardiographic features of congestive heart failure. Marfan syndrome was suspected based on cardiac anomalies. For the first time, the rupture of aneurysm of aortic sinus Valsalva was documented. Despite transplacental treatment with digoxin there was fetal demise at the 34th week of gestation and postmortem newborn phenotype confirmed prenatal diagnosis.

Marfan Syndrome is a rare genetic anomaly which can be diagnosed prenatally by detailed echocardiography, usually with bad prognosis (just opposite to “benign” case diagnosed later on in life span). The most common prenatal cardiac manifestations are cardiomegaly with signs of cardiac insufficiency. We present the case with new echocardiographic features.

First trimester diagnosis of Absent Pulmonary Valve (APV): a case report of prenatal treatment with a review of literature and data from The Polish National Registry of Fetal Cardiac Pathology

Abstract

Absent of pulmonary valve syndrome is a rare congenital heart defect, which is diagnosed prenataly in 0,8% of fetuses with congenital heart defect based on the data from National Polish Registry Of Fetal Cardiac Anomalies.

We present a case of pregnat woman and fetus with that heart defect, which was detected in the 1st trimester and treated prenatally with digoxin, amnioreduction, tocolysis and steroids following by the cardiac sugery in the neonatal period. Despite an intensive therapy, the infant died on the 3rd month of age.

We belive that the main reason of poor outcome was premature delivery at the 35th week of gestation.

We present unique cardiac images proving the changing characterists of this type anomay since 1 st trimester
