Abstract

Congenital heart diseases (CHD) represent a major clinical and diagnostic challenge for correct abnormality identification and subsequent successful therapy; even more challenging is following-up patient health after multiple post-interventional corrections often required in complex cardio-vascular abnormalities.

We describe a multi-modality imaging evaluation of a complex congenital cardio-vascular diseases, underlining the relevance of cardiac magnetic resonance to non invasively solve some issues related to postsurgical changes.
