Odd Acoustic Window and Elongated Ventricles: Echocardiographic Diagnosis of Congenital Absence of the Pericardium
Pediatric Cardiology, 05/29/2012
Flosdorff P et al. – A 14–year–old boy with a heart murmur was referred to the authors’ department because structural heart disease could not be ruled out by standard echocardiographic views. The best apical four–chamber view was obtained with the patient turned to a right lateral decubitus position and the transducer shifted almost to the posterior axillary line. A biplane chest x–ray also showed a counterclockwise heart axis deviation.
