Dilation of the main pulmonary artery and branch PAs may be seen. ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY: As mentioned previously, a sinus venosus defect and anomalous drainage of the RUPV can be visualized by both TTE and TEE. If unexplained rightheart chamber dilation is identified, then further imaging with CT or MRI is indicated. CHAPTER 1 | ATRIAL SePTAL DeFeCTS ■ 15 CT AND MRI: Either CT or MRI may be used both to confirm the diagnosis and to better delineate pulmonary venous drainage. MRI also assesses the hemodynamic effects of the defect, including measurement of RV volumes and function.
The various positions of VSDs along the ventricular septum are associated with different features and clinical courses. The perimembranous subaortic VSDs are of various sizes, ranging from trivial (restrictive) to large (nonrestrictive). These defects may become anatomically or relatively smaller over time, and some may close completely. A patient with a supracristal (or subpulmonary or outlet defect) is at risk for aortic valve prolapse and insufficiency. Some VSDs with overriding aorta display significant left-to-right shunts in early infancy and later evolve into classic tetralogy of Fallot.
