The article examines wedged hepatic venous pressure in congenital heart disease. Seventy cases of congenital heart disease including the most frequent types were studied, and wedge hepatic venous pressure was measured in each. The mean pressure was determined in the jammed position and in the free hepatic veins, inferior vena cava and low right atrium. A direct relationship was found between wedge hepatic venous pressure of the inferior vena cava and the low right atrium, but not with other parameters.
