AIMS Pulmonary regurgitation (PR) causes progressive right ventricle (RV) dilatation and dysfunction in repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rToF). Declining RV function is often insidious and the timing of pulmonary valve replacement remains under debate. Quantifying the pathophysiology of adverse RV remodelling due to worsening PR may help in defining the best timing for pulmonary valve replacement. Our aim was to identify whether complex three-dimensional (3D) deformations of RV shape, as assessed… CONTINUE READING
