Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Persistent fetal circulation with no identifiable pulmonary or cardiac disease was found in 3 full term infants. The presenting symptoms were tachypnea and cyanosis from birth, with normal hemoglobin, hematocrit and glucose levels. Cardiac catheterization and angiography revealed an anatomically normal heart with pulmonary hypertension and right to left shunt through the fetal channels (atrial and ductal levels). Clinical resolution occurred within 1-3 wk in all 3 infants.
