Distensibility and diameter of ascending aorta assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in adults with tetralogy of fallot or complete transposition
The American Journal of Cardiology, 06/29/2012
Rutz T et al. – Intrinsic aortopathy, manifested as increased ascending aortic diameters and reduced ascending aortic distensibility, is not only evident in adults with tetralogy of Fallot [TOF], but also in adults with d–TGA and an atrial switch procedure. Long–term follow–up is needed to monitor the aortic size in both patient groups.
