In this study we compared the efficiency of the right and left ventricles to generate cardiac output in subjects with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) and healthy volunteers. 4D Flow MRI was used to calculate ventricular kinetic energy and great vessel flow. Significant differences in ventricular efficiency were observed between the two cohorts, with subjects with rTOF much less efficient than healthy volunteers.
