BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) volume overload results in RV dilatation in patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) and after tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) repair with pulmonary regurgitation. AIM Study the differential effects of chronic RV volume loading on regional and global RV deformation in patients with ASD and after TOF repair. METHODS We studied… CONTINUE READING
