Abstract

Two-Dimensional Color Doppler echocardiography is a new echocardiographic method that displays the information of Doppler signals from the bloodstream and superimposes a color-coded flow map on a black-and-white two-dimensional echocardiographic image. Although the mapping of Doppler signal using conventional pulsed Doppler echocardiography has often been difficult to perform in pediatric patients, because it is time-consuming and the heart rate is increased, two-dimensional Doppler color flow mapping has made this possible even in neonates and infants. In total anomalous pulmonary venous connection, surgical requirements require clarification of the site of drainage of the anomalous veins. We had an opportunity to use the two-dimensional color flow mapping system in six patients with anomalous pulmonary venous connection. The purpose of this study is to show the ease of detection of the draining site of anomalous pulmonary veins using this new sophisticated instrument.
