Effect of ventricular size and function on exercise performance and the electrocardiogram in repaired tetralogy of Fallot with pure pulmonary regurgitation
The Annals of Pediatric Cardiology, 08/20/2012
Menon SC et al. – In repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and pure pulmonary regurgitation (PR), there is no correlation between ventricular size or function and exercise performance. RV size increases with increasing PR. Timing of pulmonary valve replacement in TOF with pure PR needs further prospective evaluation for its effect on morbidity and mortality.
