Echocardiography has a fundamental role in patients with adult congenital heart disease. This chapter identifies the role of echocardiography in atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, atrioventricular septal defects, patent ductus arteriosus, and persistent left superior vena cava. For each condition, the role of transthoracic and transoesophagael echocardiogram are shown alongside examples of main types and features and haemodynamic effect. Echocardiographic findings of LV outflow tract obstruction, supravalvular aortic stenosis, aortic stenosis, and aortic coarction are covered, as well as an examination of complex congenital lesions, including the tetralogy of Fallot and Ebstein’s anomaly of the tricuspid valve.
