We report a rare case of tetralogy of Fallot with total anomalous pulmonary venous return, left heart hypoplasia, right lung hypoplasia, and left ocular-mandibular synchinesia (Marcus-Gunn phenomenon), correctly diagnosed by cardiovascular tnagnetic resonance imaging and successfully operated by modifted Glenn anastomosis.

    The native T1 value at 3.0 Tesla is a sensitive marker of diffuse myocardial damage. We evaluated the clinical usefulness of native T1 mapping in symptomatic adults with congenital heart disease (CHD), particularly in the systemic right ventricle (RV). Prospectively, 45 consecutive symptomatic...

    We evaluated intracardiac masses in vivo, in situ and histologically to determine tissue properties revealed by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. In 15 consecutive patients scheduled for cardiotomy, the cardiac chambers were studied preoperatively with MR imaging and echocardiography. Visual...
