Abstract

Angiographic estimation of right ventricular volumes in congenital heart disease is now beginning as an interesting procedure in many catheterization laboratories[1.2]. Associated to the anatomical analysis of the different lesions and to the study of the hemodynamic parameters (pressures, flows and shunts), it has proved its role in the prediction of the outcome of many congenital lesions, with and without corrective surgery. Moreover, in our experience in some inborn defect with a spectrum of functional anomalies, as pulmonic atresia with intact ventricular septum, the analysis of the morphology of the ventricles and of their volumes has proved the possibility of suggesting the most adequate surgical correction in single cases.
