Abstract

Constriction of the ductus arteriosus in the fetus is well studied, but mostly secondary to maternal exposure to indomethacin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, or structural cardiac lesions. We present a case of a fetus presenting with right ventricular hypertrophy secondary to an S-shaped ductus arteriosus with distal constriction diagnosed by pulsed Doppler imaging. A review of the recent English literature of similar cases is presented.
