Subxiphoid, two-dimensional echocardiographic examinations were performed and interpreted before diagnostic cardiac catheterization on 138 patients with suspected congenital heart disease who were from 2 months to 15 years old. Cardiac catheterization and cineangiographic examination were performed in all patients and surgery in 99 patients and comparisions were made with each other. Eighteen of nineteen patients with an atrial septal defect excluding patent foramen ovale were correctly identified and one false-negative and two false-positive studies were reported. Sixty-three of sixty-six patients with a ventricular septal defect were correctly identified and three false-negative and five false-positive studies were reported. Conotruncal malformation was correctly predicted in all thirty-seven patients especially without false-negative and false-positive studies. Thirty-seven of forty-five patients with an other congenital cardiac malformation including patent ductus arteriosus were correctly identified and eight false-negative and four false- positive studies were reported.
