Echocardiographic Assessment of Right Ventricular Function in D-transposition of the Great Arteries

Abstract

The ability of the right ventricle (RV) to maintain systemic pressures has been questioned in patients with D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA). We have studied 7 patients aged 3 to 12 11/12 yrs. (mean 8 5/12 yrs.). Five were post Mustard repair and 2 were pre-operative. The age at surgery varied from 2 5/12 yrs. to 7 10/12 yrs.
