Dobutamine-induced increase of right ventricular contractility without increased stroke volume in adolescent patients with transposition of the great arteries: Evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging


Objective: Prognosis in patients with surgically corrected (Senning or Mustard) transposition of the great arteries (TGA) depends mainly on right ventricular (RV) function and RV functional reserve. We examined the role of dobutamine stress in the early detection of RV dysfunction in asymptomatic or slightly symptomatic patients with TGA using magnetic… (More)
