Foetal communications morphology at Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)


For the purpose of foetal communications morphology studying in children died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) the investigation of 35 newborn and infant hearts with SIDS was performed. 38 infant hearts with sudden death caused by gastric aspiration and infection diseases made the control group. Examination of hearts was done in gross with separate weighting and with use of histological methods. Much more late time of foetal communications obliteration (under 8 month of life) in infants with SIDS and also increase in both ventricles weight were revealed. Connected tissue is mainly located in the oval foramen area of interatrial septum. These factors lead to hemodynamic abnormalities and may play an important role in SIDS.
