Abstract

In the long-term follow-up of patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, monitoring fight ventricular function is mandatory. The echocardiographic subtraction method proposed by Tomita seems to be easily applicable to a pediatric age population and accurate enough to be included in the longitudinal surveillance of such a group of patients.
