Abstract

Electrocardiographic-gated 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) was performed on a 30-year-old man who presented with a complete endocardial cushion defect (ECD) and severe pulmonary hypertension diagnosed when he was 3 years old. Multiplanar reconstruction image showed the common atrium without an atrial septum, a large ventricular septum defect, and a small right ventricle due to a complete atrioventricular canal defect. Three-dimensional CT volume-rending imaging showed a patent ductus arteriosus, dilation of the ascending aorta, and an anomalous-origin right coronary artery. This patient also had heterotaxy syndrome with polysplenia and azygos continuation. MDCT proved to be a good noninvasive imaging method for the evaluation of ECD associated with cardiac as well as extracardiac abnormalities.
