In order to obtain reference data for a better evaluation of the operability of infants and children with congenital heart malformations, investigations were made on the growth of the aortic ventriculo-arterial junction along with the aortic arch as well as of the pulmonary root and the pulmonary tree. The internal diameters of the junctions and of various sites of both great arteries were measured in fresh post mortem specimens of 126 children having an age from 21 weeks of gestation up to 10 years after birth and who died from noncardiac diseases. Linear correlations were found between the internal diameters and body length. The post mortem data were in agreement with echocardiographic observations.
