Doppler echocardiographic prediction of pulmonary arterial hypertension in congenital heart disease.

Abstract

This study determines the accuracy of Doppler echocardiography (echo) for predicting the presence of pulmonary artery (PA) hypertension from Doppler PA velocity traces. The patient group included 17 patients with congenital cardiac disease who had undergone catheterization. The control group was composed of 15 normal subjects. Doppler traces were analyzed… (More)
