Tetralogy of Fallot With Restrictive Ventricular Septal Defect.

Summary of "Tetralogy of Fallot With Restrictive Ventricular Septal Defect."

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.

Clinical application of three-dimensional reconstruction and rapid prototyping technology of multislice spiral computed tomography angiography for the repair of ventricular septal defect of tetralogy of Fallot.

Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction and rapid pro-totyping technology (RPT) of multislice spiral computed tomography angiography (CTA) was applied to prepare physical models of the heart and ventric...

Secondary Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy Decades After Operative Repair of Tetralogy of Fallot.

We describe a 47-year-old man who underwent heart transplantation (HT) for severe right-sided heart failure and periodic episodes of ventricular tachycardia (VT) 43 years after operative repair of te...

160 Arrhythmia and Heart Failure Substrates in the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract of Adults with Surgically Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.

Adults with Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) have an increased risk of heart failure, arrhythmias and sudden death. We sought to investigate whether myocardial remodelling of the right ventricular outflow tr...

Biventricular Repair of Double-Outlet Right Ventricle and Closing Ventricular Septal Defect.

We report an infant with double-outlet right ventricle and progressive left ventricular failure caused by a closing apical muscular ventricular septal defect detected during follow-up, who achieved su...

The mirror image of Gerbode defect: acquired right ventricular-to-left atrial communication.

Left ventricular-to-right atrial communication, known as Gerbode defect, is rare. However, right ventricular-to-left atrial communication is much rarer. We present a case of a middle-aged woman with a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).
