Continuous wave Doppler ultrasonography was utilized to detect and characterize descending aortic blood flow velocity patterns in 27 preterm and term infants with or without an aortic run-off lesion proximal to the descending aorta. The effects of coexistent intracardiac defects on the velocity time profiles were evaluated by comparing records from patients with no intracardiac defects or systemic run-off lesions to those with a variety of intracardiac defects but no systemic run-off lesion.
