PURPOSE To assess the responses of pulmonary regurgitation (PR) and biventricular function to submaximal exercise by using a magnetic resonance (MR) imaging exercise protocol with young adult patients who underwent tetralogy of Fallot repair at a young age. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen patients with corrected tetralogy of Fallot (mean age, 17.5 years +/- 2.5 [SD]) underwent MR imaging at rest and during exercise for the evaluation of PR and biventricular function. Results were compared with… CONTINUE READING
