The association between right ventricle (RV) volume or pressure overloading pathology and intraventricular flow of repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) patient is still unclear. Therefore, we evaluated RV input- and output kinetic energy and intraventricular flow patterns for rTOF patients to speculate the energy propagation by using phase-contrast MRI. During systole, rTOF patients presented higher RV output KE. Moreover, in rTOF patients, the blood flow filled into RV with a high velocity, accompanying several local vortices. In conclusion, higher output KE and the visualization of intraventricular vectors helped to comprehend the energy propagation in RV.
