BACKGROUND Pediatric patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome rely solely on the right ventricle, resulting in anatomic maladaptations that can significantly compromise diastolic efficiency and lead to heart failure. Clinical indices to evaluate diastole are generally derived from the adult left ventricle, limiting their relevance to patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We investigated the effect of the ventricular cavity shape and tricuspid inflow typology on the filling… CONTINUE READING
