Adults born premature have smaller, less efficient hearts as demonstrated by recent cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. The goal of this proposal is to assess the impact of pharmacologic reduction of right ventricular (RV) afterload and resting heart rate on RV energetic inefficiency in young adults born premature using novel 4D flow CMR imaging.
