Caractéristiques et résultats des hospitalisations liées à une insuffisance cardiaque chez le patient adulte avec une cardiopathie congénitale

Figure 1 : 

Distribution of congenital heart defects in patients admitted for heart failure. Congenital heart defects were clustered in three categories, according to the failing ventricle. Patients with right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) surgery included patients with tetralogy of Fallot, double outlet right ventricle (RV), truncus arteriosus, pulmonary atresia and pulmonary stenosis. There was no patient with the Ross procedure. Patients with D-transposition of the great arteries (TGA) after atrial switch and congenitally corrected TGA were in the group with systemic RV. Aortic obstruction included patients with aortic subvalvular and supravalvular stenosis, valvular stenosis and aortic coarctation or interruption. Coronary complication with myocardial ischaemia was the aetiology of left ventricle failure in the two patients with D-TGA after arterial switch. CHD: congenital heart disease. PAH: pulmonary arterial hypertension.
