      Youssef, Lina; Miranda, Jezid; Paules, Cristina; García Otero, Laura; Vellvé, Kilian; Kalapotharakos, Grigorios; Sepúlveda Martínez, Alvaro; Crovetto, Francesca; Gómez, Olga; Gratacós, Eduard; Crispi, Fatima (Mosby-Elsevier, 2020)
      BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction share some pathophysiologic features and are both associated with placental insufficiency. Fetal cardiac remodeling has been described extensively in fetal growth ...
    • Main Patterns of Fetal Cardiac Remodeling 

      Crispi, Fátima; Sepúlveda Martínez, Álvaro; Crovetto, Francesca; Gómez, Olga; Bijnens, Bart; Gratacós, Eduard (Karger, 2020)
      The heart is a central organ in the fetal adaptation to an adverse environment. Fetal cardiac changes may persist postnatally and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease in adulthood. Knowledge about fetal cardiac ...

      García Otero, Laura; Gómez, Olga; Rodríguez López, Mérida; Torres, Ximena; Soveral, Iris; Sepúlveda Martínez, Álvaro; Guirado, Laura; Valenzuela Alcaraz, Brenda; López, Marta; Martínez, Josep María; Gratacos, Eduard; Crispi, Fátima (Karger, 2020)
      Objective: There is a need for standardized reference values for cardiac dimensions in prenatal life. The objective of the present study was to construct nomograms for fetal cardiac dimensions using a well-defined ...
    • Nomograms of Fetal Right Ventricular Fractional Area Change by 2D Echocardiography 

      Guirado, Laura; ; Soveral, Iris; Valenzuela Alcaraz, Brenda; Rodríguez López, Mérida; García Otero, Laura; Torres, Ximena; Sepúlveda Martínez, Álvaro; Escobar Díaz, María Clara; Martínez, Josep María; Friedberg, Mark K.; Gratacos, Eduard; Gómez, Olga (Karger, 2020)
      Objectives: Fetal right ventricular (RV) function assessment is challenging due to the RV geometry and limitations of in utero assessment. Postnatally, 2D echocardiographic RV fractional area change (FAC) is used to assess ...
