We present a case of tetralogy of Fallot with progressive restriction of the ventricular septal defect (VSD) by tricuspid valve tissue. The report includes echocardiographic and catheter images of this rare complication of tetralogy of Fallot. Restriction of the VSD in tetralogy of Fallot is associated with increased surgical-related mortality.

The GATA-binding protein 4 gene (GATA4) encodes a zinc-finger transcription factor that plays a key role in embryogenesis and cardiac development. Variants in the GATA4 gene have been implicated in se...
The aim of this study was to investigate the extent of diffuse myocardial fibrosis by measuring left (LV) and right ventricular (RV) extracellular volume fraction (ECV) in patients with repaired tetra...

Using biocardiac model in helping the total correction of the Tetralogy of Fallot.
Tetralogy of Fallot is one of the most frequent congenital heart malformations. In many cases re-interventions, surgical or catheter-based, are necessary after the repair of tetralogy of F...
In this controlled trial, patients with tetralogy of Fallot will be randomized to either interval training, continuous training, or usual care groups.
At Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, it is standard of care to do a cardiac MRI on patients with the diagnosis of Tetralogy of Fallot and Aortic Coarctation to evaluate heart f...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive transthoracic device closure of ventricular septal defect. This is a multi-center randomized controll...
A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of four key features including VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY; and a dextro-positioned AORTA. In this condition, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body often causing CYANOSIS.
Incomplete transposition of the great vessels in which both the AORTA and the PULMONARY ARTERY arise from the RIGHT VENTRICLE. The only outlet of the LEFT VENTRICLE is a large ventricular septal defect (VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS or VSD). The various subtypes are classified by the location of the septal defect, such as subaortic, subpulmonary, or noncommitted.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two lower chambers of the heart. Classification of ventricular septal defects is based on location of the communication, such as perimembranous, inlet, outlet (infundibular), central muscular, marginal muscular, or apical muscular defect.
A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of three key features including ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; and RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY.
A condition characterized by the thickening of the ventricular ENDOCARDIUM and subendocardium (MYOCARDIUM), seen mostly in children and young adults in the TROPICAL CLIMATE. The fibrous tissue extends from the apex toward and often involves the HEART VALVES causing restrictive blood flow into the respective ventricles (CARDIOMYOPATHY, RESTRICTIVE).
