ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the effect of congenital heart disease treatment on the right ventricle. He notes that the anticipation of postoperative congenital heart disease's natural history become a relevant challenge for cardiologist and cardiac surgeon. He notices that the atrial switch operation for great arteries transportation and tetralogy of Fallot repair has demonstrated that the right ventricle is susceptible to chronic pressure or volume load.
