We aimed to explore the difference of the wall shear stress (WSS) and oscillatory shear index (OSI) between control and rTOF patients. The rTOF patients were divided into rTOF1and rTOF2 groups according to their indexed right ventricular end-systolic volume (RVESVi). The rTOF patients presented decreased WSSaxial and OSIcirc in the ascending aorta. In rTOF2 group the WSSaxial and OSIcirc correlated with resistance index and flow velocity. In conclusion, higher resistance index and slower flow velocity correlated with decreasd WSSaxial and OSIcirc in rTOF2. The deceasing OSIcirc may slightly improve the stress condition of vascular wall.
