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.

Role of right ventricular three-dimensional electroanatomic voltage mapping for arrhythmic risk stratification of patients with corrected tetralogy of Fallot or other congenital heart disease involving the right ventricular outflow tract.

The post-surgical history of repaired congenital heart disease (rCHD), in particular tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), is often complicated by sudden death. Electrical myocardial abnormalities could be a sub...

Ventricular septal defect closure in a patient with achondroplasia.

Achondroplasia with co-morbid CHD is rare, as are reports of surgical treatment for such patients. We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with achondroplasia and ventricular septal defect. Her vent...

Shunt Lesions Part I: Patent Ductus Arteriosus, Atrial Septal Defect, Ventricular Septal Defect, and Atrioventricular Septal Defect.

This review summarizes the current understanding of the pathophysiology and perioperative management of patent ductus arteriosus, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, and atrioventricular ...

Right ventricular global longitudinal strain in repaired tetralogy of Fallot.

Echocardiogram has limitations in effectively assessing right ventricular (RV) function in children post tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair. We evaluated the utility of speckle tracking echocardiography...

Myocardial ECV Fraction Assessed by CMR Is Associated With Type of Hemodynamic Load and Arrhythmia in Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.

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...

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).
