OBJECTIVE Recent descriptions of decreased exercise capacity 10 to 15 years after arterial switch operation (ASO) suggest subclinical hemodynamic restrictions. Persistent impairment of ventricular performance following ASO may add to this. We aimed to characterize the time course of changes in biventricular performance within the first year following ASO. METHODS We prospectively included 26 patients with transposition of the great arteries undergoing ASO and 20 age-matched controls. Left and… CONTINUE READING
