Diagnosis and management of RVDCC in PA/IVS
Classic old paper about RVDCC in PA/IVS; Giglia TM, e al.; Circulation 1992

A staged decompression of RV allows growth of RV and subsequent BiV repair in patients with PA/IVS
TV growth was no obtained by AP shunt and pulmonary valvotomy. TV size at birth appeared to be a predictor for achieving BiV repair and major RV-coronary artery fistula was a strong predictor for single ventricle palliation; Kotani Y, et al.; Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 2016.

Achieving BiV circulation in patients with moderate hypoplastic RV in PA/IVS after transcatheter PV perforation
Predictive factor of BiV outcome is TV:MV ratio > 0.79 (100% specific and 100% PPV); Chen RHS, et al.; Congenit Heart Dis 2018.

Outcomes after decompression of the RV in infants with PA/IVS are associated with degree of TR: results from the Congenital Catheterization Research Collaborative
Outcomes after RV decompression in PA/IVS; Petit CJ, et al.; Circ Cardiovasc Interv 2017.
