Abstract

Although left cardiac axis deviation can occur as an isolated sonographic finding in an otherwise normal fetus, most cases will demonstrate abnormalities of cardiac and/or extracardiac anatomy. Left cardiac axis deviation is largely associated with cardiac abnormalities, especially conotruncal anomalies, which may not be detectable by a four-chamber view alone. Therefore, the cardiac axis should be examined routinely as part of the four-chamber view of the fetal heart.
