Abstract

The authors have evaluated data from the international literature regarding the frequency of antenatally screened out cardiac congenital anomalies. Literary data confirm the fact that the screening of congenital cardiac anomalies is highly influenced by the fact whether the country in question has its own regular routine antenatal screening programme or not and whether this screening is applicable to only selected cases or low-risk cases, too. It is an accepted fact, that with a routine second trimester fetal 4 chamber cardiac screening 50% chances are there to detect cardiac and great vessel anomalies. Efficacy of the screening could further be increased by a combined examination of the four heart chambers as well as their outflow tracts, including fetal echocardiography in selected high-risk cases.
