Прийма Н.Ф., Комолкин И.А., Попов В.В., Комиссаров И.А., Щеголев Д.В.


Echocardiography was performed in 30 children at the age of 4-18 years with II and III Degree cobbler’s chest. The study was made according to standard techniques. Heart changes were revealed in the process of examination. The shape of the right ventricle. was changed in 12 children. The geometry of the right atrium was noted in two cases. The kinetics of the interventricular septum was studied. Hypokinesis was revealed in 5 cases, hyperkinesis — in 2 cases, asynchronic interventricular septum contraction — in 2 cases. The increase of velocity characteristics of the diastolic ducts through the tricuspid valve was registered in 7 children.
