- Commentary: Imaging Surveillance of Pulmonary Regurgitation: Is Echo Good Enough?Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery
- PreviewAs congenital heart disease patients continue to live longer, the goal moves from simply survival to adulthood, to being physically active as an adult doing the activities they love. Advances in medical and surgical management have enabled such a paradigm shift, and for patients with tetralogy of Fallot, excellent late survival and good quality of life is expected. However, good quality of life for these patients often involves pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) at some point down the road. Part of this refinement in care has been optimizing timing PVR in patients who have previously undergone complete repair.
