The relative importance and interactions of CMR-derived parameters of ventricular mechanics in the prediction of death and transplant late after the Fontan operation

Abstract

Background We have previously shown that a larger indexed enddiastolic volume (EDVi) of a functional single ventricle as determined by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is an independent predictor of death and heart transplant late after the Fontan operation. Other reports have suggested that decreased ventricular strain and ejection fraction (EF) are associated with poor outcomes. The objective of this study was to identify the relative importance and interactions of CMR-based parameters for risk of death and transplant after the Fontan operation.
