Abstract

Objective: We reviewed our center's experience with prenatal detection in Nevada's general population for young infants undergoing cardiovascular surgery. Methods: We identified patients born in Nevada that underwent an initial cardiovascular surgery between 0 and 6 months old with birth dates between August 2012 and July 2021. Additionally, we calculated prenatal congenital cardiovascular malformation detection rates for each of the 9 years. Results: We identified 660 patients. For the 660 patients, 649 (98%) mothers underwent prenatal care, which included at least one anatomical-survey obstetric ultrasound. Of the 649 with prenatal care, 395 (61%) had a prenatal diagnosis overall. However, prenatal diagnosis improved over the 9 years from 44% in 2012 to 79% in 2021 (correlation coefficient of 0.93, p = .00024). Conclusions: Our results demonstrated a progressive rise in prenatal detection rates for young infants undergoing cardiovascular surgery in Nevada.
