Studies of Congenital Heart Disease
IV. Uncomplicated Pulmonic Stenosis
Congenital pulmonic stenosis is indicated by cardiac catheterization by the finding of a higher systolic pressure in the right ventricle than in the pulmonary artery. Eight cases of uncomplicated pulmonic stenosis are studied. The findings on history, physical examination, x-ray and fluoroscopy, and electrocardiogram have been analyzed and the variations in circulatory dynamics encountered in these individuals are described in detail.
