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.

Postoperative interventricular septal haematoma following tetralogy of Fallot repair and perimembranous ventricular septal defect repair.

Interventricular septal haematoma is a rare postoperative complication in congenital heart surgery. We present one case of a 6-month-old after tetralogy of Fallot repair and 1 case of a 10-month-old a...

Surgical repair of a complete atrioventricular septal defect with tetralogy of Fallot using a classical one-patch technique and pulmonary valve preservation.

The association of complete atrial ventricular septal defect (cAVSD) with tetralogy of Fallot remains a complex malformation that involves both inlet and outlet components of the ventricles. The surgi...

Right ventricular outflow tract systolic function correlates with exercise capacity in patients with severe right ventricle dilatation after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.

The relationship between exercise capacity and right ventricular (RV) components function in repaired tetralogy of Fallot patients with severely dilated right ventricles is poorly understood. The aim ...

Evolution of right ventricular size over time after tetralogy of Fallot repair: a longitudinal cardiac magnetic resonance study.

It is commonly believed that pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) leads to progressive right ventricular (RV) enlargement. However, progressive RV dilatation...

Left Ventricular Stiffness in Adolescents and Young Adults with Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.

Left ventricular (LV) remodeling after tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair may influence LV stiffness. We hypothesized that LV stiffness is altered after TOF repair and related to myocardial calibrated i...

Early Re-intervention in Infants and Small Children After Correction of 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...

Exercise Training in Adults With Corrected Tetralogy of Fallot

In this controlled trial, patients with tetralogy of Fallot will be randomized to either interval training, continuous training, or usual care groups.

MRI Assessment of RV Function: Patients With TOF or Aortic Coarctation

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...

Tetralogy of Fallot for Life

The aim is to conduct a prospective multi-centre international inception cohort study with an enrollment goal of 3,000 TOF patients and 2 year follow-up post-repair. The proposed sample si...

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.

A homeobox-containing transcription factor that functions in heart development. Mutations in the NKX2-5 gene are associated with ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS and TETRALOGY OF FALLOT.

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.
