The roles of chronic pressure and volume overload states in induction of arrhythmias: an animal model of physiologic sequelae after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.


OBJECTIVE Sudden death occurs in as many as 8% of patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot and has been attributed to arrhythmias. The purpose of this study was to establish an animal model to evaluate the individual contribution of different physiologic sequelae after tetralogy of Fallot repair in the development of late-onset arrhythmias.
