Differential branch pulmonary artery regurgitant fraction is a function of differential pulmonary arterial anatomy and pulmonary vascular resistance.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate whether differential branch pulmonary artery (BPA) regurgitation correlates with differences in BPA anatomy and physiology. BACKGROUND Patients with repaired conotruncal anomalies such as Tetralogy of Fallot frequently have residual BPA stenosis or BPA size differences. Previous reports have demonstrated an increased… (More)
