The Polish National Registry for Fetal Cardiac Pathology (www.Orpkp.Pl) – Selected Data Analysis for 2013 and 2014 and Comparison wth Data from 2004 to 2012

Open access

Abstract

As in every year since 2004, we analyzed data from the Polish National Registry for Fetal Cardiac Pathology to follow actual trends in types of congenital heart disease (CHD) and to assess the development of prenatal cardiology in Poland. Overall, the most frequent cardiac malformation detected prenatally in 2013 -2014, similar to the previous years, was hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). The average age of the examined fetuses was unchanged and remained above 20 weeks of gestation. An increased trend of detecting other cardiac malformations, such as transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) and aortic stenosis (AS), and the predominance of vaginal deliveries over cesarean deliveries suggested significant improvements in prenatal and perinatal care in Poland.
