Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a congenital heart defect which is classically understood to involve four anatomical abnormalities (although only three of them are always present). It is the most common cyanotic heart defect, representing %, and the most common. The prevalence of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is to per live births, accounting for approximately 7 to 10 percent of all congenital heart disease (CHD). 22q11 deletion is seen up to 20 percent of patients with TOF.

Abstract: The surgical treatment of tetralogy of Fallot can be considered as a success story in the history of congenital heart diseases. Since the early outcome is no longer the main issue, the focus moved to the late sequelae of TOF repair, i.e. the pulmonary insufficiency and the secondary adaptation of the right ventricle.

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) was the first formally described cyanotic cardiac lesion (Karl and Stocker, ). TOF consists of four anatomic components of variable severity: (1) an anteriorly malaligned VSD, (2) overriding aorta, (3) obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), and (4) right ventricular hypertrophy (Bailliard and. Tetralogy of Fallot is relatively rare, occurring in about 5 of ev births. Although this heart defect has been recognized for years, the exact cause is still unknown. The defect occurs during the heart's development before birth. About 15 percent of people with Tetralogy of Fallot have a specific genetic abnormality that is also. Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common cyanotic congenital heart condition with many cases presenting after the newborn period. It has been classically characterized by the combination of ventricular septal defect (VSD), right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO), overriding aorta, and late right ventricular hypertrophy.   Tetralogy of Fallot Medical Guide Paperback – July 9, by Qontro Medical Guides (Author) out of 5 stars 1 rating.
