PLSVC- it is the common congenital anamoly.. may be yoyr doctor suggest for fetal echo.. what about NT scan and markers?? Did you had any??

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Did the anamoly scan showed the same report previously??


NT and double markers reports came normal.. It wasn't detected in the anomaly scan as well.. Got detected today in Growth scan.. Is it something very complicated doc for my baby? I am very worried..

Dr. Neha D. Khodke

Hi Rr. Was any other anomaly detected? In many cases; PLSVC if present isolatedly is harmless because it is draining into the right chamber of the heart where there is venous blood. Wait for your gynec to see the report
