ABSTRACT:

Objective: The main objective of the study was to put side by side the echocardiographic conclusion prior to and subsequent to the surgical revamp of Tetrology of Fallot. Methods: The study was intermediary which was conducted at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore (September 2017 to October 2018). It includes the patients who had undergone the therapy of Tetrology of Fallot. Physical analysis, trunk radiography, and electrocardiography were done before applying echocardiography. SPSS was used to investigate the data established. Results: Total patients were 30 which were considered in the study. Out of which 10 were females and 20 were males. The average age of patients before surgery was (47.40 – 21.34) months. And the average age after surgery was (74.46 – 20.63) months. According to the conclusion of the right heart, Z scores for climax E speed, climax A speed, phase prior to expulsion, isovolumic recreation time, myocardial performance catalogue and isovolumic reduction time were clearly dissimilar. In the left heart following characteristics were diverse from each other: aortic, left atrium, left ventricular end-systolic aspect, left ventricular end-diastolic aspect, alternation time, climax E speed, A speed, climax E velocity, climax A speed, pre-expulsion time, pre-expulsion phase, a restriction portion and expulsion portion. Conclusion: We can easily judge the heart performance by right ventricle performance index. Keywords: Echocardiography, Tetralogy of Fallot, Myocardial performance index, Children.
