Abstract

Aim: Increased pulmonary flow in left-to-right shunt lesions and decreased pulmonary flow and hypoxia in right-to-left shunt lesions constitute the main cause of morbidity and mortality in congenital heart diseases. This study was planned to determine the relation of vasoactive mediators and pulmonary hypertension in congenital heart disease with shunt lesions.
