BACKGROUND We hypothesized 1) that long-term ventricular outcome and exercise capacity would be better in patients with isolated pulmonary valve stenosis (PS) treated with balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty (BPV) than in patients operated for tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), and 2) that ventricular outcome and exercise capacity would not be different in PS patients… CONTINUE READING
