There is an increased prevalence of proteinuria in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease (CCHD), independent of the exact cardiac lesion and unrelated to cardiac operations. In 194 such patients, both screening tests for total urine protein and albumin excretion rates measured by immunoassay showed abnormally high levels when compared with controls.
A description was given of the methods used to quantitate blood values in CCHD. It was shown that the rate of protein excretion correlated directly with the mean height of the hemoglobin, the length of time it had been raised, and with the hematocrit and inversely with the
