I think the chapter on pathogenesis is wrong. In true Eisenmenger's, where the defect is post-tricuspidal, the right ventricle probably never loses it's muscular "neonatal" appearance. It's also probable that the physiologically pulmonary hypertension of the newborn perseveres in a lot of these cases, see: Hopkins WE. The remarkable right ventricle of patients with Eisenmenger syndrome. Coron Artery Dis. 2005;16:19-25. --Ekko 17:38, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

Cyanose tardive[edit]

The term "cyanose tardive" now redirects here. I think we ought to mention it somewhere. JFW | T@lk 13:54, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Mention Right Ventricular Hypertension in Pathogenesis?[edit]

Hi, i think to make the explanation of the shunt reversal clearer, we could mention right ventricular hypertrophy before the sentence starting "Eventually, ...". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:51, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

English translation of diagram[edit]

I think the diagram used should have an English translation, to make it more easily interpretable by the reader on the English Wikipedia - I could volunteer to make one, but I would be using a translator program. --Sphecidae (talk) 18:58, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Support I came here to suggest that.--Brainist (talk) 20:22, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
