Abstract

In repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF), pulmonary insufficiency results in varying degrees of right ventricle (RV) dilation. A subset of patients is diagnosed at initial cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) with a massively dilated RV, far beyond pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) criteria, which is unlikely to return to normal size after PVR. This study aimed to identify risk factors for massive RV dilation at initial CMR. This nested case-control study included all patients at our institution with rTOF and massive RV dilation (indexed RV end-diastolic volume [RVEDVi] ≥200 ml/m
