Recently there has been a renewed interest in congenital heart disease. The use of chamber catheterization,1, 2 angiocardiography3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and the establishment of definitive fluoroscopic criteria by Taussig9 have added considerably to our fundamental knowledge of this field. Surgical technics have been perfected for the successful treatment of patent ductus arteriosus,10 coarctation of the aorta,11, 12 and some lesions associated with pulmonary stenosis or atresia as the tetralogy of Fallot, non-functioning right ventricle, and truncus arteriosus communis.13, 14
It was felt in view of these developments that a review of the electrocardiographic aspects might be useful.
