Abstract

ToF patients corrected with the transatrial-transpulmonary approach have good long-term survival. PVR is a frequent event at longer follow-up, and other events are limited. The use of a TP is a predictor for poorer event-free outcomes, increasing the risk of the composite endpoint 1.7 times.
