Congenital heart disease is associated with abnormal ventricular shape that can affect wall mechanics and may be predictive of long-term adverse outcomes. Atlas-based parametric shape analysis was used to analyze ventricular geometries of eight adolescent or adult single-ventricle CHD patients with tricuspid atresia and Fontans. These patients were compared(More)
Survival rates for infants with congenital heart disease (CHD) are improving, resulting in a growing population of adults with CHD. However, the analysis of left and right ventricular function is very time-consuming owing to the variety of congenital morphologies. Efficient customization of patient geometry and function depends on high quality shape(More)
Background Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) affects about 4 out of every 10,000 babies born and requires lifelong followup. Even after successful early repair, late cardiovascular (CV) complications arise. In adult patients, left ventricular remodeling (LVR) patterns can predict CV risk. However, few studies on LVR of CoA patients exist due to lack of(More)
Background Improvements in palliative surgery for infants born with single ventricle heart defects have increased their survival rate into adulthood, but the risk of developing heart failure remains high. The ventricles remodel to geometric extremes, making statistical comparison with the normal population difficult beyond the assessment of mass and(More)
Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect, with an incidence of 75 in every 1000 births. As a result of improved interventions, 90% of people with congenital heart disease now survive to adulthood. They must undergo regular imaging to assess their biventricular (left and right ventricular) function. Analysis of the images is problematic due(More)
