Abstract
Background: CHD is the most common congenital malformation in live births with an incidence of around 1% in general population. The present study was conducted detect congenital heart disease with ultrasonography.
Materials & Methods: This study was conducted on 28 cases of congenital heart disease recorded with USG. Antenatal ultrasound examinations were performed between 13 and 26 weeks.
Results: Maximum patients were with gestation age of 13-17 weeks (12) followed by 17-21 weeks (10) and 21-26 weeks (6). The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Among CHD various disorders were atrioventricular septal defect (4), simple coarctation of the aorta (3), double-inlet or -outlet ventricle (4), hypoplastic left heart syndrome (5), simple transposition of the great arteries (TGA) (6), tetralogy of Fallot (4) and truncus arteriosus (2). The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05).
Conclusion: Antenatal examination may proved fruitful by in detection of CHDs. Most common was simple transposition of the great arteries.
