ObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to determine the morphologic and physiological predictors of post-natal surgical pathway in a longitudinal series of fetuses with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PAIVS) and/or critical pulmonary stenosis with reversal of ductal flow (CPS) using statistical modeling.BackgroundPulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum is rarely associated with chromosomal or extra cardiac malformations, so decisions about continuing a pregnancy are strongly influenced by the prediction of univentricular (UV) or biventricular (BV) circulation.MethodsPredictive scores were derived, using a combination of z-scores of fe...
