Regurgitant Lesions in Congenital Heart Disease

  • James V. Chapman
Part of the Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine book series (DICM, volume 114)


The methods of evaluating regurgitant lesions in congenital heart disease are similar to methods used for acquired heart disease. Of course, the abnormal structure of the heart often noted in these cases requires the application techniques to be somewhat modified. In this chapter, we will present a general review of the application techniques used to evaluate the severity of regurgitant lesions rather than discuss specific issues (such as mitral regurgitation in atrio ventricular canal defect). The discussion of specific disease entities will be presented in the appropriate chapters.
