Abstract

Double inlet left ventricle (LV) is a type of atrioventricular connection in which the morphologically LV receives more than 50% of the atrioventricular valves when they are separate, or more than 75% of a common atrioventricular valve. The aim of this study was to establish an anatomoechocardiographic correlation between the morphologic features of equivalent anatomic specimens and the echocardiographic images of patients to provide a means of interpreting the image correctly and a more precise diagnosis of the cardiac defect. Echocardiography was used to study 18 patients with LV double inlet who were seen in a congenital heart disease clinic. The morphology of 17 hearts with this malformation from the department of embryology was analyzed to compare the anatomic features with their echocardiographic images. Echocardiography proved to be a noninvasive diagnostic tool that allowed characterization of anatomic and functional aspects of double inlet LV.
