Objective: A paucity of data exists regarding the relation of mean right atrial pressure (RAP) to Doppler parameters of right atrial and ventricular filling in pediatric patients with congenital heart disease. Methods: Fifty patients (30 male and 20 female) with mean age of 4.96±4.05 who were admitted in the pediatric cardiology ward of Nemazee Hospital affiliated to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, were included in this study. Patients were categorized into two groups according to their RAP measured by cardiac catheterization: Group 1 (40 patients) were those with mean RAP
