Abstract

For the first time, peak systolic strain and strain rate (SR) were used to assess right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) regional function in children after transcatheter and surgical atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. Fifteen patients with successful ASD device closure (the ASD-D group, mean age 9 ± 3 years), 15 age- and gender-matched patients with successful ASD surgical closure (the ASD-S group, mean age 9 ± 3 years), and 15 age- and gender-matched controls were enrolled. Regional RV and LV longitudinal function was significantly reduced in the ASD-S group compared with controls in all the studied segments. The ASD-D group presented significantly (p
