Abstract

Somatic growth is associated with alterations in myocardial mechanics in children with heart disease and in most animal models of congenital heart disease. However, the effect of age and body size on myocardial contractility and loading conditions in normal infants and children is not known. Therefore, 256 normal children aged 7 days to 19 years (34%
