Abstract

Objective: The main purpose of present study was to investigate the impact of percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) on right ventricular (RV) systolic function assessed by tricuspid annular isovolumic myocardial acceleration (IVA) that is independent of preload and afterload changes.
