BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in right ventricular (RV) function and deformation parameters before and at steady state after the Norwood operation in neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. A further aim was to delineate factors that affected these changes. METHODS On echocardiograms before and 21 days (range, 10-35 days) after the Norwood operation, the two-dimensional speckle-tracking parameters global and regional peak systolic longitudinal strain… CONTINUE READING
