  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Left ventricular function was studied in totally 37 adults with tetralogy of Fallot (T/F), in 14 of whom the study was done both pre- and post-operatively.

Left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV) was smaller than normal in patients with a classical type of T/F, but enlarged in patients who had had Blalock-Taussig shunt (B-T shunt), who had pulmonary atresia (PA) with relatively large major aortico-pulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCA), and who was associated with aortic regurgitation (AR).
