Fetal Cardiology: In Utero Diagnostics and Care

Fetal cardiology involves diagnosing heart conditions in unborn babies to enable timely intervention and management. Techniques like fetal echocardiography and Doppler ultrasound allow detailed visualization of the fetal heart's structure and function. This non-invasive imaging technique helps identify congenital heart defects, assess blood flow, and guide treatment planning.Fetal cardiology is crucial in pregnancies with maternal diabetes, genetic syndromes, or a family history of heart disease. Fetal cardiologists provide parents with information about the heart condition, prognosis, and available treatment options. Fetal cardiology teams often include obstetricians, neonatologists, geneticists, and pediatric cardiologists to ensure comprehensive care. Some heart conditions can be treated before birth to prevent complications postnatally, such as balloon valvuloplasty for stenotic valves. Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: Continuous monitoring of the fetal heart rate helps detect irregularities and potential cardiac issues.
