Article title

Prenatal Qualification for Postnatal Balloon Valvuloplasty in Isolated Critical Pulmonary Valve Stenosis Based on 10 Cases From a Tertiary Centre of Fetal Cardiology


Title variants

Languages of publication



Pulmonary valve stenosis is a congenital heart defect that is possible to detect and diagnose during prenatal life. We present a retrospective analysis of ten cases with isolated critical pulmonary valve stenosis (IPVS) to establish echocardiographic criteria which could predict the possibility for postnatal balloon valvuloplasty performed shortly after delivery.
