BACKGROUND We aimed to define differences between systemic right ventricle (RV) in patients with atrial switch procedure for transposition of the great arteries, and congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA), which remodels early on in life and the subpulmonary RV in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (iPAH) which remodels later in adulthood to the effects of progressive pulmonary hypertension. METHODS Prospective echocardiographic assessment of… CONTINUE READING
