Fetal and Pediatric Cardiology Seminar in Paris
December 9th and 10th of 2011 – Paris – FRANCE
We propose this Seminar on fetal and pediatric cardiology. We meant it to be different. Indeed, the presentations will be delivered by Junior / Senior pairs. We hope you will find appealing and exciting this array of subjects ranging from genetics, embryology, first quarter imaging, 3D and 4D imaging and magnetocardiography to pathophysiology of the coronary flow and neurodevelopment, pathologies of the left side of the heart and surgical procedures.

4D Fetal Echocardiography (Ebook Open Access)
Authors: Domenico Arduini, Giuseppe Rizzo
The examination of the fetal heart is part of the comprehensive fetal scan, but this examination is still considered a challenge even for experienced sonographers.
Dextroposition of the fetal heart
a short review
Normally the fetal heart lies on left side the chest at left of spine with the
apex pointing to left.
Dextroposition is defined as most of the normally connected fetal heart is found
on the right side with the apex pointing to left of the fetal chest.

Fetal cardiac dysrhythmias are potentially life-threatening conditions. However, intermittent
extrasystoles, which are frequently encountered in clinical practice, do not require treatment.
Sustained forms of brady- and tachyarrhythmias might require fetal intervention. Fetal echocardiography
is essential not only to establish the diagnosis but also to monitor fetal response to therapy.
In the last decade, improvements in ultrasound methodology and new diagnostic tools have
contributed to better diagnostic accuracy and to a greater understanding of the electrophysiological
mechanisms involved in fetal cardiac dysrhythmias.
