Advances in foetal echocardiography allow detection of conotruncal anomalies such as transposition of the great arteries and common arterial trunk. Early detection of these anomalies is important for appropriate delivery planning, family counselling, and management. This manuscript will review the anatomic considerations, differential diagnosis, and foetal echocardiographic features of each of these malformations and review the importance of prenatal diagnosis and family counselling.
