In patients with corrected tetralogy of Fallot (cToF), left ventricular (LV) dysfunction is closely related to right ventricular (RV) dysfunction, indicating adverse ventricular-ventricular interactions. However, the mechanism that links RV dysfunction to LV dysfunction remains unclear. In this prospective study, 32 patients with cToF and 19 controls were enrolled. With cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, biventricular ejection fractions were assessed. Using 2-dimensional speckle tracking… CONTINUE READING
