Objective: In this study, our aims were to monitor the change in ventricular septal defects (VSD) during pregnancy, to present the result of post-natal evaluation results and to document associated anomalies. Material and Methods: From January 2007-June 2009, the results of VSD determination with fetal echocardiography were examined in the pregnant women who were referred to Erciyes University, Gynecology and Obstetric Department of Prenatal Diagnosis Unit for various reasons. Results: The most common indications of pregnant women were routine ultrasound scan, high risk in triple test, suspicion of cardiac or extracardiac anomalies on ultrasound scan, respectively. Fetal echocardiography was performed in 1033 pregnant women, and cardiac anomalies were determined in 193 pregnant women (18.7%). The clinical records could not be found for 69 pregnant women. Ventricular septal defect (VSD) was diagnosed by Fetal Echocardiography in 105 (84.7%) of 124 pregnant women who had cardiac anomalies in their fetus. Abnormal prenatal karyotype, which is applied 70 (66.6%) of 105 patients who had VSD, was determined in 11 (10.5%) patients with trisomy 21 as the most observed abnormality. Conclusion: Prenatal diagnosis has an important role in the management of VSD. Fetal ultrasonography may provide useful additional information to aid prenatal counseling.
