Ventricular performance in adults after operation for congenital heart disease.

Symptomatic ventricular dysfunction in adults who have had reparative operations for the more common congenital heart defects is uncommon. However, both invasive and noninvasive laboratory assessments of ventricular function have revealed abnormalities in some subsets of patients after repair of atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, aortic or pulmonary stenosis, tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries and tricuspid atresia. Possible causative factors of late ventricular dysfunction after repair include the duration and severity of volume or pressure overload; the duration and severity of cyanosis; intermittent episodes of imbalance between myocardial oxygen supply and demand; residuae, sequelae and complications of treatment; and acquired disease. Further long-term follow-up studies are needed to assess the effect of current methods of therapy as well as timing of operative intervention on ventricular function in adults.[1]
