The radiographic findings in 13 patients with congenital complete heart block without associated anomalies are presented to illustrate characteristic features. Findings related to the increased stroke volume in these patients include: (a) simulated shunt vasculature; (b) pulmonary venous pypertension with redistribution of blood flow to the upper lungs, and, in one patient, peribronchial edema; (c) cardiomegaly with right ventricular, pulmonary artery, left atrial, left ventricular, and aortic enlargement; and (d) variation in cardiac size on serial examinations. Less commonly seen were findings related to atrioventricular dissociation with transitory marked pulmonary venous hypertension present in one patient when left atrial contraction occurred during ventricular systole when the mitral valve was closed.
