MUNOZ-CASTELLANOS, Luis; ESPINOLA-ZAVALETA, Nilda e KURI-NIVON, Magdalena. Anatomic support in the echocardiographic diagnosis of right atrioventricular connection. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2009, vol.79, n.3, pp. 219-220. ISSN 1405-9940.
Objective: To show the close relationship between the anatomic features and the echocardiographic image in the absence of right atrioventricular connection. Material and method: Echocardiographic study of a patient with right atrioventricular connection and a corresponding anatomic specimen from the Museum of Embryology of the INC "Ignacio Chávez". Results: A close correlation between an anatomic specimen with absence of right atrioventricular connection and an echocardiographic image of a patient with the same cardiopathy was established. Conclusion: The correlation between the anatomic features and the echocardiographic image, supports the imagenologic diagnostic precision of this method.
