Cardiopulmonary performance during exercise in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve


In patients with tetralogy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve, the dilated pulmonary arteries sometimes result in bronchial compression and pulmonary symptoms due to airway obstruction, recurrent pulmonary infection, and development of bronchiectasis. After complete intracardiac repair, residual pulmonary disease may be expected to result in impaired… (More)
