We aimed to investigate the abnormal aortic flow and its adverse interaction with regional myocardial motion in repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) patients. The rTOF patients were divided into rTOF1and rTOF2 groups according to their indexed right ventricular end-systolic volume (RVESVi). The rTOF2 group demonstrated increased aortic retrograde fraction and there was a correlation exhibited between retrograde fraction and systolic myocardial motion. In conclusion, the assessments of abnormal artic flow and altered myocardial motion were helpful in elucidating the possibly adverse interaction between the characteristics of the aorta and myocardium in rTOF patients with different degrees of RV dilatation.
