Pulmonary Valve Stenosis Identification Before Birth

Fetal Predictors of Pulmonary Valve Stenosis and Determining Post-Delivery Management

Protocol Description

The purpose of this multi-center retrospective chart review study is to determine how fetal pulmonary valve stenosis, as determined by echocardiogram, compares to newborn pulmonary valve stenosis, with a goal of improving post-delivery management and care. Pulmonary valve stenosis, a condition where the heart valve that helps blood flow to the lungs is impaired, accounts for about 85 to 12% of congenital heart disease in children.

Eligibility Criteria

The study will evaluate cases where mothers, ages 18 and older, delivered babies who had a fetal diagnosis of pulmonary valve stenosis, a post-delivery transthoracic echocardiogram, and pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty procedure.
Males and Females: Newborns
