  • Abstract
  • Our results suggest a unique fetal cardiac remodeling in which the LV stays smaller from the decreased growth stimulus of reduced volume load. Postnatally, the LV is acutely volume loaded resulting in an overall geometry change with higher filling velocities and preserved systolic function. These findings improve our understanding of CoA from fetal to neonatal life.
