We thank the authors for their interest in our recent publication in which we reported on significant right heart structural reverse remodeling seen in the immediate postsurgical pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) period in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot, which was followed by further time-related biological remodeling exemplified by further reduction in right ventricular (RV) end-systolic volume.1 Patients put forth for PVR following multidisciplinary review were opportunistically and serially approached by the research team (S.V.B.-N.) for study inclusion if they fulfilled the study inclusion criteria. The patients in …
