Distention of the Immature Left Ventricle Triggers Development of Endocardial Fibroelastosis: An Animal Model of Endocardial Fibroelastosis Introducing Morphopathological Features of Evolving Fetal Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Postoperative echocardiography. (a) Short axis views of LVs in diastole and systole. The distended LV model developed significantly larger LVs than those in the unloaded LV model (, NS: not significant). (b) Apical long axis view of a LV in the distended LV model. An AR jet was detected in a 2D echocardiography with color Doppler.
