Right ventricular function in the human fetus

James C. Huhta
From the journal


Fetal RV function is critical for survival and normal cardiovascular development. Doppler can be used to assess function. Combined with wise use of imaging techniques, the cause of abnormalities can be assessed. Both congenital heart defects and other cardiovascular defects can lead to hydrops and death. Serial semi-quantiation of fetal heart failure can be done with a Cardiovascular Profile score.
