Based on the data of angiographic examination of 25 patients with a single heart ventricle, a new classification of complex congenital heart disease is proposed. It indicates the type of defect without taking into account the morphology of the single ventricular chamber, which is angiographically difficult or impossible to determine in some cases. This classification simplifies the interpretation of angiographic images, reflects the anatomical variants of the defect and meets the modern requirements of cardiac surgery.
