ABSTRACT
Pre-wedge pulmonary arteriography provides a safe, useful method for demonstrating pathologic changes in the segmental pulmonary (circulation. Patterns of pulmonary vascular changes in congenital heart disease have been studied. The total arborization of the segmental arterial bed, as well as the caliber and tortuosity of branchings of the small arterioles have been studied in relation to hemodynamic data derived from cardiac catheterization. We believe this method will prove helpful in the selection of candidates for heart surgery.
