摘要

Background Right ventricular (RV) outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) might protect the RV from adverse remodeling caused by significant pulmonary regurgitation (PR) in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF), but the underlying mechanisms and influences on exercise tolerance remain unclear. This study sought to investigate the impacts from mild RVOTO on ventricular remodeling and exercise capacity in rTOF. Methods Eighty-five rTOF patients with a PR fraction ≥20% were assessed with cardiac magnetic resonance, cardiopulmonary exercise test, and echocardiography. Patients with a peak RVOT pressure gradient 20-50 mmHg were considered to have mild RVOTO (n = 29), while those with a gradient
