Abstract: The value of two-dimensional echocardiography in the pre-operative assessment of children with congenital heart disease was studied in a series of 150 infants and children who were submitted to cardiac catheterisation. The findings from both procedures were compared. Diagnostic features were present in two-dimensional echocardiography over 97% of cases. In many instances two-dimensional echocardiography provided additional information, for instance, the delineation of types of atrio-ventricular canal (Rastelli types A, B and C). With the addition of contrast echocardiography and Doppler techniques, two-dimensional echocardiography can obviate the necessity of cardiac catheterisation in many instances.
