Data obtained from systematic investigations of the anatomic changes in young persons are exceedingly rare. For better insight into the origin of such lesions and in order to determine the sequence of events during their development, a study of the pulmonary arteries in young children with ventricular septal defect was considered… CONTINUE READING
