Results from this study showed that patients who underwent successful operation for transposition of the great arteries had no appropriate increase in stroke volume in response to exercise of a nature similar to common recreational activities. The impairment, most likely due to disturbances in both venous return and ventricular systolic function, is compensated for by an increase in peripheral oxygen extraction; however, this increase may not be adequate with maturation or during prolonged… CONTINUE READING
