In tetralogy of Fallot (ToF), the main clinical focus after surgical repair is directed to the right ventricle (RV) (eg, to the degree of pulmonary regurgitation and RV dilatation). Left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and remodeling in patients with RV overload has received much less attention, although some studies indicate that it may in the long-term significantly contribute to left heart failure.Indeed, a recent study identified LV systolic dysfunction as an outcome predictor for death and ventricular tachycardia in ToF. However, the interrelationship between RV and LV remodeling has not been studied in detail in clinically asymptomatic patients with ToF. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is optimally suited to simultaneously assess adverse RV and LV volumes and function. Emerging CMR techniques allow tissue phenotyping within the heart, including the assessment of diffuse interstitial myocardial fibrosis, by measuring the expansion of the extracellular volume (ECV).
