Children with cyanotic congenital heart disease had a decreased glomerular filtration rate (71-8 +/- 18-9 ml/min per 1-73 m2) measured by endogenous creatinine clearances, compared with children who had had complete corrective surgery, children with noncyanotic heart disease, and normal children. There was a significant correlation between low glomerular filtration rate and haematocrit values above 50%. Daily urinary sodium excretion was reduced in the cyanotic patients.
