The quantification of myocardial deformation may allow detection of early abnormalities and provide independent prognostic information, as demonstrated in echocardiographic studies.Meanwhile, some studies have suggested that CMR-FT may be evaluated earlier than ejection fraction to detect early abnormalities of the ventricular myocardium in postoperative follow-up of CHD. But, there is still limited experience with cardiac magnetic resonance feature tracking strain analysis in child patients. To the best of our knowledge, the significance of quantifying ventricular myocardial deformation in post-Fontan patients with pEF using CMR-FT has not been investigated. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the myocardial strain in children with pEF after the Fontan operation using feature tracking technique compared to healthy children.
