Thanks a lot for comment!
You´re absolutely right! This patient
has a trisomy 21. But we weren´t under the impression that there is a
AVSD after TEE. In TEE we couldn´t detect a splitting of the anterior
(superior) bridging leaflet and we found no attachment of the anterior
leaflet to the ventricular septum by chordae tendineae. Overall we had
no indications for AVSD. But you´re right, in that vid it looks like

Could these images be from a Down's syndrome patient?

about 50 y old patient with septic shock. A genetic defect is known. There exists no documents of clinical history. In Part 1 you can see the transthoracal echocardiography: we could see an ASD, a VSD. There is no sign of AV-canal or a stenosis of the pulmonary valve. Furthermore we see a distinct hypertrophy of the right cavum (about 14-15 mm; by comparison with the left ventricular: 12-13 mm).
