Abstract

Aortopulmonary window is a rare congenital anomaly, resulting from incomplete septation of the truncus arteriosus into the aorta and the pulmonary artery during embryogenesis. The utility of three-dimensional (3D) echocardiogram has not been previously reported in dogs with aortopulmonary windows. The authors demonstrate the diagnostic potentials of 3D echocardiogram and its ability to more completely define the anatomical features of aortopulmonary window in a dog when compared to two-dimensional imaging. Ultimately 3D echocardiogram was considered to provide information critical to determining the feasibility of beating heart surgical correction in this case.
