Change of serum growth factors in infants with isolated ventricular defect undergoing surgical repair
Background. Despite increasing clinical use and recent evidence
Methods. Twenty normal infants (group I) and 44 consecutive infants with echocardiography established isolated VSD (aged from 3 months to 1 year; body weight from 6.0 ± 1.8 kg to 8.2 ± 1.6 kg) were investigated. Among 44 infants with VSD, 20 with shunt fraction, Qp/Qs
Results. The serum levels
Conclusions. Improvement in serum levels
