- 1.1. Six cases of idiopathic congenital dilatation of the pulmonary artery with clinical data and right heart catheterization studies are presented.
- 2.2. From the observations made, certain criteria have been enumerated which can establish the diagnosis clinically in most cases. However, confirmation by right heart catheterization is suggested in every case.
- 3.3. The importance of differentiating this entity from those cardiac defects correctable by surgery is stressed.
- 4.4. It is emphasized that, at the present, this condition is probably benign; however, it will take a long term follow-up to arrive at a prognosis for this anomaly with any degree of certainty.
