The quantification of regional myocardial function in tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) by conventional M-mode and 2-dimensional echocardiography is difficult because of the complex right ventricular (RV) and altered left ventricular (LV) geometry. In 30 asymptomatic postoperative TOF patients (aged 4 to 16 years) with a low pressure in the right ventricle and with varying degrees of pulmonary regurgitation and in 30 aged-matched healthy children, the ultrasonic-derived regional deformation parameters… CONTINUE READING
