11 Possible Causes for Arrhythmias Detected Prenatally, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Renal Teratoma

    Although cardiac tumors can easily be detected by prenatal US at as early as 20 weeks of gestation, diagnosis requires that they are of sufficient size.[] A chest x-ray did not find abnormalities. Abdominal ultrasound examination revealed space-occupying lesions with internal cystic and solid changes in the right kidney.[] A chest x-ray showed no abnormality.[]

  • Asplenia Syndrome

    Electrocardiogram (ECG): This is useful in the detection of arrhythmias and other abnormalities in cardiac function Echocardiogram: This is a non-invasive imaging technique[] The chest X-ray showed no abnormalities. The computed tomography (CT) scan revealed no abnormalities of the kidneys.[] Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG): a record of the electrical activity of the heart Echocardiogram (also called “echo” or ultrasound): sound waves create an image of the heart Chest x-ray[]

  • Incessant Infant Ventricular Tachycardia

    Supraventricular Tachycardia SVT is the most common serious arrhythmia detected prenatally. It accounts for about 6% of referrals, as shown in Table 2.[] Fig. 3 shows the sequence of chest x-ray. The patient remained asymptomatic and tachycardia free after 2 years of follow-up.[] They often are detected during routine auscultation at a prenatal visit.[]

  • Familial Atrial Fibrillation

    A chest X-ray can give your doctor a better look at your heart and lungs to see if there’s any obvious cause for your symptoms.[] An echocardiogram is another noninvasive test that can produce images of your heart, so your doctor can look for abnormalities.[]

  • Teratoma of the Brain

    Although cardiac tumors can easily be detected by prenatal US at as early as 20 weeks of gestation, diagnosis requires that they are of sufficient size.[] […] one or more of the following tests: Imaging studies such as a CT(CAT) scan or MRI to see detailed images of the brain Angiogram or MRA, which involve the use of dye and X-rays[] This involves pictures or X-rays taken of the bone after a dye has been injected that's absorbed by bone tissue. These are used to detect tumors and bone abnormalities.[]

  • Familial Cutaneous Collagenoma

    These occur in approximately 50-70% of individuals with TSC, and are most frequently detected prenatally or in the neonatal period.[] The chest X-ray was without marked cardiopulmonary abnormality, and the pulmonaryfunction tests were within normal limits.[] Chest X-ray, electroencephalogram, electrocardiogram, skull X-ray, radiological examination of the pelvis and long bones, and renal ultrasound did not reveal any abnormality[]

  • Ductus Arteriosus Aneurysm

    Am J Cardiol 2000, 85: 1159-1161. 10.1016/S0002-9149(00)00718-9 View Article PubMed Google Scholar Chobot V, Hornberger L, Hagen-Ansert S, Sahn D: Prenatal detection of restrictive[] In the adult, early presentation may include laryngeal nerve palsy, an abnormal chest X-ray, and/or a lesion located in the aortopulmonary window [4] ; while the extreme presentation[] , genetic conditions Diagnostic method Echocardiography, Doppler, X-ray Prevention Screening at birth, high index of suspicion in neonates at risk Treatment NSAIDs, surgery[]

  • Long QT Syndrome 13

    Hsiao et al. [ 30 ] analyzed the outcomes of 123 fetuses with prenatally detected cardiac malformations and/or cardiac arrhythmias.[] The chest X-ray was normal. On ECG, long QT waves of 450msec duration, as corrected QT (QTc), were present.[] Hsiao SM, Wu MH, Jou HJ, Lee CN, Shyu MK, Shih JC, Hsieh FJ: Outcome for fetuses with prenatally detected congenital heart disease and cardiac arrhythmias in Taiwan.[]

  • Levocardia

    Postnatally, intestinal malrotation with no evidence of intestinal obstruction or asplenia was detected. Neither of the cases had reported cardiac arrhythmias.[] […] chest X-ray films showing the position of the stomach gas as being discordant with the location of the heart.[] Interestingly, many living infants with heterotaxy syndrome exhibited arrhythmia, many more than were detected prenatally [33/49 (67.3%) vs. 21/103 (20.3%), P Our study demonstrated[]

  • Sacral Hemangiomas - Multiple Congenital Abnormalities Syndrome

    Although cardiac tumors can easily be detected by prenatal US at as early as 20 weeks of gestation, diagnosis requires that they are of sufficient size.[] ray control), and then, as we pointed above, these abnormal vessels are closed using various substances.[] A head and neck as well as spine X-ray was performed that did not show any abnormality. CT scan/MRI was refused by patient's parents due to cost factor.[]
