Figure 6 :Fetal echocardiographic views of aortic balloon dilation in fetuses with aortic stenosis. (A) Note the needle approaching the left ventricular apex; (B) Note the wire crossing the left ventricular outflow tract; (C) Note the balloon being inflated at the level of the aortic valve. RV= right ventricle, LV= left ventricle, arrows demarcate needle, wire, or balloon during the procedure. Images courtesy of Dr. Wayne Tworetsky from Boston Children’s Hospital
