OBJECTIVES To investigate myocardial blood flow of the morphological right systemic ventricle in unoperated patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) by positron emission tomography (PET). DESIGN Prospective cross sectional clinical study. SETTING Tertiary referral centre for paediatric cardiology. PATIENTS 15 patients with CCTGA were investigated by PET with nitrogen-13 ammonia at rest and during adenosine vasodilatation. A subgroup of seven… CONTINUE READING
