Prenatal 3D-ultrasound diagnosis of isolated intrahepatic portal-systemic shunt with intact ductus venosus: A case report and literature review.

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

We present a case of isolated intrahepatic portosystemic shunts with an aorto- hepatic-umbilical connection; prenatally diagnosed with 3D Doppler flow in a 27-year-old patient at 27 weeks of gestation. Fetal karyotyping was normal, detailed evaluation of the venous and cardiovascular system showed a patent ductus venosus and no other abnormalities. These fetuses with isolated intrahepatic shunts are at risk for intra-uterine growth restriction (27%), all cases had a good prognosis with live births. Postnatal follow-up to control shunt closure is vital as persistent shunts may lead to subsequent complications.
