The prevalence of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction is expected to rise as patients with tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) age. Elevated LV filling pressures by cardiac catheterization carry worse prognosis in this population,1 but data on echo-Doppler assessment of LV diastolic function/filling pressures in adults with ToF are limited. We identified 48 adults (age ≥18 years) with repaired ToF undergoing right heart catheterization and transthoracic echocardiography within 7 days (median, −1 day [−1 to −2]) between June 2004 and December 2018. None had prior mitral valve replacement/repair. Echocardiographic and invasive hemodynamic data were abstracted from the reports. Cardiac catheterization was performed in a fasting state and elevated LV filling pressures defined as pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) >12 mmHg.2 Data are presented as counts, mean±SD, or medians (25th to 75th percentile). Groups were compared using t test and Wilcoxon test for continuous data and χ2 and Fisher exact tests for nominal variables, whichever appropriate.
