Critical pulmonary stenosis or atresia with intact ventricular septum represents a congenital cardiac lesion for which the long-term prognosis appears to depend partly on the size of the right ventricle. Thus, the capability of noninvasive assessment of right ventricular size to predict operative outcome was examined in 15 infants (aged 1 to 30 days, mean 5.6) with severe right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (either critical pulmonary stenosis [7 patients] or pulmonary atresia with… CONTINUE READING
