Systemic ventricular function in patients with transposition of the great arteries after atrial repair: a tissue Doppler and conductance catheter study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the utility of tissue Doppler echocardiography in the setting of repaired transposition of the great arteries when the right ventricle (RV) functions as the systemic ventricle. BACKGROUND Myocardial acceleration during isovolumic contraction, "isovolumic myocardial acceleration" (IVA), has been validated as a… (More)
