    This is a clear illustration for the hypoplastic left heart syndrome. You are right by the enlarged right chambers in the US any how . however, the right chambers of the heart seems enlarged because the left heart is actually smaller than usual. A patent foramen ovale or an atrial septal defect is usually present in that syndrome.

    The rate of occurrence is increased in patients with Turner syndrome, Noonan syndrome, Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, or Holt-Oram syndrome.

    To be honest...i thought this was a subXiphoid 4 chamber view and i was wondering where the 4th ventricle is.

    And the starred structure, iguess is the hypoplastic left ventricle

    Thanks (-:

    Interestingly the syndrome was responsible for 25 % of deaths due to cardiac congenital defects in the neonate before introducing of the surgical intervention. I thought it would be relevant as you guys posted about Noonan syndrome.(-:
