Summary

Complex congenital heart defects are accurately detectable antenatally using fetal echocardiography. In continuing pregnancies with fetal cardiac abnormalities, regular follow-up with advancing gestation is essential. This report documents the changes that occurred in the fetal cardiac anatomy in a fetus detected during antenatal scanning to have an atrioventricular septal defect with isomerism of the left atrial appendages.
