The long-term ventricular function of children after surgical and transcatheter closure of secundum atrial septal defects was assessed by Doppler tissue imaging and compared with that of age-matched controls. Long-term right ventricular function was impaired in patients after surgical repair, as reflected by decreased systolic and diastolic tricuspid… CONTINUE READING
