FREE subscriptions for doctors and students... click here
You have 3 more open access pages.

These include:

  • if the defect is small the ECG may be normal
  • while the pulmonary resistance is low the volume overload of the left ventricle produces features of left ventricular hypertrophy
  • as the pulmonary resistance increases right ventricular hypertrophy occurs
  • as pulmonary and systemic vascular resistances become balanced the left ventricular volume overload is lost. The left ventricular hypertrophy regresses leaving pure right ventricular hypertrophy
