This investigation was carried out to appraise the value of auscultatory and phonocardiographic findings as clinical tools for estimating the degree of severity of pulmonary stenosis, with or without intracardiac shunt. The value of phonocardiography in these conditions has been the subject of some controversy.12
Fifty-six patients with pulmonary valvular or infundibular stenosis were subjects of this study. The clinical impression was confirmed by cardiac catheterization in all cases, and in 21 cases by operation or postmortem examination as well.
Twenty-one cases of pulmonary stenosis without evidence of intracardiac shunt, 30 cases of pulmonary stenosis with ventricular
