The electrocardiograms of 251 patients with proved congenital cardiovascular defects were reviewed. The study was limited to patients with the following surgically correctable anomalies: coarctation of the aorta, patent ductus arterious, ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, isolated pulmonic stenosis and tetralogy of Fallot. The criteria for abnormality outlined by Myers1 were rigidly applied. The multiple lead electrocardiogram may be of valuable assistance in establishing a diagnosis of congenital heart disease. It is not, however, diagnostic of any specific defect and must always lie interpreted in the light of all other available information. However, certain electrocardiographic abnormalities are seen so commonly with some defects and so uncommonly with others that the electrocardiogram may strongly substantiate or virtually exclude the presence of a specific defect. These generalizations were listed in the conclusions.
