Clinical analysis on application of color Doppler echocardiographic in cortriatrium diagnosis

Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2015 Sep;19(17):3266-9.


Objective: Discuss the main points of diagnosis of cortriatrium; patient's color Doppler echocardiography (CDE), provide basis for clinical treatment.

Patients and methods: Inspect 12 cortriatrium cases with CDE, 10 cases with cardiovascular angiography, 12 patients were confirmed by operation. Operations were all carried out under the moderate hypothermia cardiopulmonary bypass with intracardiac correction technique. Abnormal diaphragm in the left a trial was completely removed, and other combined heart malformations were also cured.

Results: Four cases for II A type, 1 case for II B type, 6 cases for II A type, 1 case for II B type. Among them, there were 7 cases for combined atrial septal defect, 5 cases for ventricular septal defect, 3 cases for patent ductus arteriosus, 6 cases for pulmonary arterial hypertension. Twelve children all survived, deformity correction was satisfactory, and after operation, recovery went on well in 6 months to 3 years.

Conclusions: CDE has specific diagnostic value for cortriatrium; thus, it is the optimal method of diagnosing cortriatrium.
