Abstract
The objective of this study was to assess exercise performance in subjects born in Sweden between 1980 and 1995 and undergoing surgery for pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum and to identify determinants of exercise performance. Twenty-seven subjects, 16 with biventricular repair and 11 with univentricular palliation, and 28 age- and sex-matched controls completed cardiopulmonary exercise and lung function testing. Peak oxygen uptake was determined using a symptom-limited ramp bicycle exercise protocol. Regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of peak oxygen uptake (V'O(2)), The index group had lower peak V'O(2) (1.4 [median 0.8; range 2.5] l/min) than controls (1.9 [0.7; 3.1]; p
