Cardiopulmonary stress tests play an important role in the evaluation and follow-up of adults with congenital heart disease. Spiro-ergometry can be applied in daily practice for risk stratification, prognostic evaluation and timing or evaluation of interventions. In this manuscript, an overview is given of the most valuable spiro-ergometric parameters of which the prognostic value has been proven in several retrospective studies. Furthermore, their relevance in congenital obstructions of the left ventricular outflow tract and the role of other stress imaging modalities in patients with fixed or dynamic stenosis are discussed.
