Abstract

Pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) is associated with improvement in symptoms and right ventricular remodeling in patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). There are limited population-based data about outcomes after PVR. We therefore hypothesized a temporal increase in annual volume of PVR and decrease in in-hospital mortality after PVR in the United States.
