Pathological studies in five hearts from patients with congenital heart diseases have demonstrated that the number of neurons is similar to that found in normal controls. The number of neurons has been counted in a strip of right atrial wall between the venae cavae. The hearts were selected from a wide spectrum of the population, the youngest being 5-months old and the oldest 35 years old (mean age: 12 years); all were in failure. The neuronal counts are comparable to those found in a normal population of mean age 40 years.
