Abstract

Objectives The aim of this study was to examine whether restrictive right ventricular (RV) physiology (the presence of antegrade pulmonary arterial flow in late diastole) occurred in patients with moderate to severe isolated pulmonary valvular stenosis (PVS) and to estimate its prevalence and relationship to RV function and patient symptoms.
