Abstract

Objective: The present study aimed to evaluate the association between the equations indicating the pulmonary artery development prior to total correction surgery in patients diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, such as McGoon ratio, Nakata index and pulmonary artery Z score and the course of aortic arch, presence/absence of accompanying patent foramen ovale (PEO) and the patient's gender.
