Our results revealed a significant linear correlation between the RV function measured by CMR and mean systolic strain of all the three segments of the RVFW segments (base, mid, and apex).
Cut-off points of systolic strain and peak SR at the basal RVFW of 25% and -4 sec-1 have been previously suggested for a preserved global RV systolic function (RVEF [greater than or equal to] 50%) with sensitivities of 81% and 85% and specificities of 82% and 88%, respectively (25, 26).
In adult patients with repaired TOF, the assessment of the RV function via Doppler-derived strain imaging of the RVFW had a significant correlation with CMR.
