Case report:

31-year-old patient, low risk pregnancy, third pregnancy, the nuchal translucency was 3mm.

At week 12, first video clip showed ventricle septal defects, the second Doppler clip showed huge aorta and small main pulmonary arteries/ ductus.

The pregnancy was terminated. The cytogenetic study had not been done.

Figure 1: Showing the ventricular septal defects.



Figure 2: Showing 
huge aorta (3) and small main pulmonary arteries/ ductus (4)
 


Video clip 1-4:

At 12 weeks,  first video clip showed ventricle septal defects, the second Doppler clip showed huge aorta and small main pulmonary arteries/ ductus. 




At 13 weeks, 2 video clips showed two outflow tracts: the discontinuation of the left outflow tract suggesting the ventricular septal defects; the disproportion of the two vessels' diameters suggesting an pulmonary artery stenosis.
