ABSTRACT
Reports on a study of angiography to establish the normal value referred to the body surface area and to know whether or not the assessment of the size of the aorta on the basis of the cross-sectional area at the upper third is of value for the diagnosis of a group of congenital cardiac lesions. Student cases of congenital cardiopathies; Ventricular septal defect; Atrial septal defect; Pulmonary stenosis; Tetralogy of Fallot.

    The clinical and angiographic features of 12 patients showing a significant reduction in the diameters of the distal aorta and the common iliac arteries are described.

    Introduction: Anomalous origin of one pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta is a rare cardiac anomaly in which the pulmonary artery abnormally arises from the ascending aorta. Physiologically, most patients develop signs of cardiac failure due to high flow to both lungs, with systemic or...

For surgical strategy, knowing normal dimensions of aorta in congenital heart disease complicated with hypoplastic aorta is very important. Researchers in this study performed a retrospective analysis...
