tetralogy of fallot adult not repair

Yumi Shiina, Koichiro Niwa
It is challenging to evaluate aortopathy in congenital heart disease using conventional investigations such as brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV). Therefore, we evaluated the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), a dimension of the ascending aorta and plasma transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) level, in order to find novel noninvasive parameters of aortopathy in adults with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). Prospectively, we enrolled 42 consecutive adults with TOF (28 patients with repaired TOF were not on ARB, 8 patients with repaired TOF on ARB, 6 patients with no repair or only palliative repair) and 20 age-matched healthy controls...

OBJECTIVE: Myocardial fibrosis has been associated with poorer outcomes in tetralogy of Fallot, however only a handful of studies have assessed its significance in the current era. Our aim was to quantify the amount of late gadolinium enhancement in both the LV and RV in a contemporary cohort of adults with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot, and assess the relationship with adverse clinical outcomes. DESIGN: Single centre cohort study SETTING: National tertiary referral center Patients: One hundred fourteen patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot with median age 29...

Left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) and right ventricular (RV) ejection fraction by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) are associated with functional health status in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) in cross-sectional studies, but few longitudinal data are available. This study aimed to determine predictors of subsequent decrease in functional health status in midterm follow-up. Patients with repaired TOF who had previously completed CMR and assessment with the Short Form 36 version 2 (SF-36) were recruited for repeat CMR, SF-36, and exercise test, if they had not had interval pulmonary valve replacement (PVR)...

OBJECTIVE: The role of right ventricular longitudinal strain for assessing patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot is not fully understood. In this study, we aimed to evaluate its relation with other structural and functional parameters in these patients. METHODS: Patients followed-up in a grown-up CHD unit, assessed by transthoracic echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and treadmill exercise testing, were retrospectively evaluated. Right ventricular size and function and pulmonary regurgitation severity were assessed by echocardiography and MRI...

Postoperative residua and sequelae after repair of tetralogy of Fallot in adults became one of the major concerns in the field of adult congenital heart disease. Right heart failure and arrhythmia can result fatal, and are considered to be related dilated right ventricle due to pulmonary valve regurgitation. Although precise indication of pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) is still not established, right ventricular end-diastolic volume index less than 150-170 ml/m(2) and right ventricular end systolic volume index less than 82-90 ml/m(2) may be border line for RV remodeling after PVR...

Survival of patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is worse than for the general population. We aimed to assess the time-related effects of surgical repair on right (RV) and left ventricle (LV) myocardium by quantifying hypertrophy and fibrosis. Cardiomyocyte transverse diameter and percent of fibrosis were measured in 8 adult heart specimens with late-repaired TOF, 6 with unrepaired TOF, and 11 normal hearts (controls). The RV and LV mean and median cardiomyocyte diameter and percent of fibrosis were significantly greater than controls in both repaired and unrepaired hearts...

BACKGROUND: The goal of this study was to interrelate N-terminal B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging-derived ventricular function, mass, and volumes in adults with pulmonary regurgitation after Fallot repair and to evaluate the prognostic relevance of these parameters regarding adverse clinical outcome. METHODS: Eighty-one patients (aged 26.3 ± 7.4 years; male sex, 45.7%; New York Heart Association class I, 72.8%; pulmonary valve velocity, < 3 m/s) were included...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the 'gold standard' for quantifying pulmonic regurgitation (PR) in adults with congenital heart disease, but remains costly and is less readily available than echocardiography. Qualitative echocardiographic assessment of PR is challenging, and guiding criteria are limited. It is unknown if echocardiography is sufficient to screen for significant PR. The study aim was to determine whether cardiac MRI provides additional benefit in the assessment of PR in adults with congenital heart disease...

Indications for prophylactic tricuspid annuloplasty in patients with pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair are unclear and often extrapolated from acquired functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) data in adults, where despite correction of primary left heart pathology, progressive tricuspid annular dilation is noted beyond a threshold diameter >4 cm (21 mm/m(2)). We hypothesized that unlike in adult functional TR, in pure volume-overload conditions such as patients with PR after TOF, the tricuspid valve size is likely to regress after pulmonary valve replacement (PVR)...

Patients with repaired pulmonary stenosis (PS) or tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) both develop pulmonary regurgitation (PR) leading to right ventricular (RV) dilatation and dysfunction. We aimed to characterize differential effects of chronic PR in these populations. Patients with surgically repaired PS were matched 1:2 by age and PR fraction with patients with TOF. Patients with previous pulmonary valve replacement were excluded. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance data were compared; peak longitudinal and circumferential systolic strain by feature tracking were compared to evaluate differential contribution of the RV sinus and outflow tract, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: In a previous study, we identified factors affecting the durability of bioprosthetic valves in the pulmonary position following total repair of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). In this study, we aimed to identify factors affecting the durability of the bioprosthetic valve with regard to patient age and implanted valve size in order to guide valve choice in adolescent patients. METHODS: We enrolled and analysed 108 cases of pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) with stented bioprosthetic valves in TOF patients between January 1998 and February 2014...

Cardiac arrhythmias occurring during the intraoperative period for cardiac surgery have been associated with excess morbidity and mortality. Several antiarrhythmics have been utilized for the management of intraoperative arrhythmias. These antiarrhythmic medications can cause undesirable adverse outcomes in the intensive care setting. The incidence and treatment of adult intraoperative arrhythmias have been studied. In addition, the prevalence, risk factors, and optimal treatment of pediatric postoperative arrhythmias have also been studied...

The aim is to compare tricuspid valve (TV) atrioventricular junction (AVJ) annular motion parameters in unrepaired atrial septal defect (ASD) and repaired Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. We retrospectively reviewed CMR studies performed between November 2007 and November 2013 in patients 16-45 years of age with unrepaired ASD (with or without partial anomalous pulmonary venous return) and with repaired TOF, who had previous infundibulotomy, but have not undergone pulmonary valve replacement...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) may develop functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) due to annulus dilation. Guidelines suggest pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) in patients with rTOF with progressive TR, but data on clinical outcomes are lacking. Our objective was to determine whether TR was predictive for adverse events after PVR. METHODS: In this retrospective, multicenter cohort study, patients with rTOF who had undergone PVR after preoperative echocardiographic assessment of TR grade were included...

We describe the case of a 22-year-old with tetralogy of Fallot, who underwent complete repair with ventricular septal defect closure and right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit placement. She has undergone numerous subsequent conduit changes, each complicated by early stenosis and failure. Unfortunately, serial conduit changes can become increasingly challenging. While extra-anatomic conduits have been described for complex left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, they have not been described for right-sided obstruction...

Ventricular strain and dyssynchrony can be measured in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), but their effect on clinical outcomes is poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate if ventricular strain and dyssynchrony measured by cardiac magnetic resonance feature tracking are associated with death and sustained ventricular tachycardia. Patients with TOF who died or had ventricular tachycardia (TOF case, n = 16) were compared with age-matched patients with TOF with no adverse outcome (TOF control, n = 32)...

OBJECTIVE: Ventricular kinetic energy measurements may provide a novel imaging biomarker of declining ventricular efficiency in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot. Our purpose was to assess differences in ventricular kinetic energy with 4-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging between patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot and healthy volunteers. METHODS: Cardiac magnetic resonance, including 4-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging, was performed at rest in 10 subjects with repaired tetralogy of Fallot and 9 healthy volunteers using clinical 1...

BACKGROUND: Chronic pulmonary regurgitation after tetralogy of Fallot repair often leads to progressive right ventricle dilation, dysfunction, and frequently, pulmonary valve replacement. For those with significant tricuspid regurgitation at the time of pulmonary valve replacement, it is unknown whether concomitant tricuspid valve repair improves postoperative outcomes. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of patients after tetralogy of Fallot repair who underwent pulmonary valve replacement between 1999 and 2012...
