We aimed to quantitatively describe left ventricular (LV) blood flow patterns and evaluate ejection efficiency using 4-dimensional velocity-encoded cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (4DFlow MRI) and particle tracing in healthy volunteers and corrected AVSD patients. Patients presented more lateral and apical inflow, which resulted in decreased direct flow and increased retained flow percentage for apical and lateral LV cavity segments, which may contribute to a decreased cardiac pumping efficiency.
