Precise delineation of central and branch pulmonary artery anatomy, patent ductus arteriosus, and major aorto-pulmonary collateral artery anatomy in the fetal diagnosis of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect is challenging but important to prenatal counseling and postnatal management. We aimed to evaluate the accuracy of fetal echocardiography to determine these anatomical nuances in pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect. This was a retrospective, single-institution, 10-year chart review of consecutive prenatal diagnosis of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect for assessment of pulmonary artery, patent ductus arteriosus, and major aorto-pulmonary collateral artery anatomy and comparison with postnatal imaging including echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and computerized tomography angiography.
