Discussion and Conclusion

The congenital hearts anomaly is rare illnesses that corresponded 5.08% of our II perinatal mortality . These illnesses have a clinical symptoms that was: heart blow, cyanosis, cardiomegaly and breathing symptoms in a 70% of the cases. These lesions are one of the causes of mortality in the first week of the postchildbirth.

We identified 25 cases of CHD of 950 perinatal deaths from Hospital General of 1990-1997. The CHD more frequent were Acyanotic defects with 60 % of cases, and thrre diseases important were : Atrium septal defect, coarctation of aorta and hypoplastic left heart syndrome with 15 cases (60 %).

The gross pathology is necessary for final diagnosis and autopsy and x-ray are indispensables. The special effects of edge in imagens with photographic editor software can facility the analysis from CHD.

The frecuency of CHD were :There were Acyanotic diseases: Atrial defect in 7 cases (28 %) , ventricle septal defect in 2 cases (8 %) , coarctation of aorta in 4 cases ( 16 %) , patent ductus arteriosus in 2 cases ( 8 %), , Situs Inversus in 1 case ( 4 %) . The cyanotic diseases: left heart hypoplasic in 4 cases ( 16 %) ;Fallot's tetralogy in 2 cases( 8 %) ; transposition of the great arteries 1 case( 4 %); Truncus arteriosus in 2 cases ( 8 %); anomalous venouses returned in 1 case ( 4 %) We donīt known because HLHS and coarctation of were the most frecuency. We Didnīt identified differences clinical and statistical between studied variables.


We reported 25 cases of congenital heart defects. We did therefore realize Clincal-pathologic analysis.
