Abstract: This paper is the fourth of our series focusing on the chest x-ray (CXR), highlighting that this remains a useful and relatively cheap investigation in congenital heart disease and allows objective serial comparison. These x-rays are from a female aged 45 years with a secundum atrial septal defect and pulmonary hypertension. Figure one shows a very large heart and gross pulmonary artery dilatatation, evidence of longstanding left to right shunt with pulmonary artery dilatation to periphery of lungs and prominent pulmonary veins in upper lobes.
