In brief: Depends on anatomy

Chronic PPHN can cause R sided enlargement of atrium and ventricle, ECG changes will show up as R axis deviation, RVH, RA enlargement, and if severe see S-T and T wave changes, but more prominently with severe Pulm HTN, all depends on what the Echo reveals with anatomy, and what type of congenital heart disease was there originally
