Doming of the pulmonary valve is considered an important angiographic sign for valvar stenosis. But, this sign cannot be used with similar specificity following valvotomy because at the time of surgery a bicuspid valve is created. Pre- and postoperative hemodynamic data and right ventriculograms are reviewed in 22 patients with simple pulmonary valvar stenosis. There was no correlation between the transvalvar gradient and appearance of the pulmonary valve after surgery.
