Date:3/5/2009

NEW YORK, March 5 /PRNewswire/ --

    WHO:  The Columbia University Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is
          happy to announce that Charles S. Kleinman, M.D., Professor of
          Clinical Pediatrics in Obstetrics/Gynecology and Director of Fetal
          Cardiology at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York
          Presbyterian will begin seeing patients at our practice on East 60th
          Street.  Dr. Kleinman is the "Father of Fetal Echocardiography" and
          has over 30 years of experience in the field of fetal
          echocardiography and in the practice of prenatal cardiology.  Dr.
          Kleinman joined the faculty of the Columbia University College of
          Physicians and Surgeons and the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital
          in 2002.

    WHAT: A fetal echocardiogram is a targeted ultrasound study that
          specifically images the heart and cardiovascular system of the
          developing fetus.  Such a study may detect the presence of
          congenital heart disease or abnormalities of fetal heart function or
          rhythm that may influence the management of pregnancy, delivery, and
          newborn care.

    WHY/HOW: Fetal echocardiography can detect the most serious legions in the
             fetal heart from as early as twelve weeks of gestation.  More
             typically, evaluation of the fetal heart takes place between 14
             and 18 weeks of gestation.  A single visit with Dr. Charles S.
             Kleinman can achieve a very detailed evaluation of potential
             high risk patients.  Patients with the following indications may
             be at risk:

  • Family history of CHD in one of the parents or a previous child groups
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Identical twins
  • Mothers whose ultrasounds have revealed a malformation in any part of the fetal anatomy
  • Exposure to cardiotoxic drugs in early pregnancy (anti-epileptic medications)

    WHERE/WHEN: Dr. Kleinman is currently available at Columbia Eastside
                located at 16 East 60th Street between Madison and Fifth
                Avenue in Suite 480 on the fourth floor.  The telephone
                number for appointments is (212) 326-8951
