A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of four key features including VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY; and a dextro-positioned AORTA. In this condition, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body often causing CYANOSIS.
Backflow of blood from the PULMONARY ARTERY into the RIGHT VENTRICLE due to imperfect closure of the PULMONARY VALVE.
A valve situated at the entrance to the pulmonary trunk from the right ventricle.
The pathologic narrowing of the orifice of the PULMONARY VALVE. This lesion restricts blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE to the PULMONARY ARTERY. When the trileaflet valve is fused into an imperforate membrane, the blockage is complete.
A congenital heart defect characterized by the narrowing or complete absence of the opening between the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the PULMONARY ARTERY. Lacking a normal PULMONARY VALVE, unoxygenated blood in the right ventricle can not be effectively pumped into the lung for oxygenation. Clinical features include rapid breathing, CYANOSIS, right ventricle atrophy, and abnormal heart sounds (HEART MURMURS).
Developmental abnormalities involving structures of the heart. These defects are present at birth but may be discovered later in life.
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the right HEART VENTRICLE.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two lower chambers of the heart. Classification of ventricular septal defects is based on location of the communication, such as perimembranous, inlet, outlet (infundibular), central muscular, marginal muscular, or apical muscular defect.
A bluish or purplish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes due to an increase in the amount of deoxygenated hemoglobin in the blood or a structural defect in the hemoglobin molecule.
Surgery performed on the heart.
A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of three key features including ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; and RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY.

Motion pictures of the passage of contrast medium through blood vessels.
Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.
The lower right and left chambers of the heart. The right ventricle pumps venous BLOOD into the LUNGS and the left ventricle pumps oxygenated blood into the systemic arterial circulation.
The valve consisting of three cusps situated between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart.
Abnormalities in any part of the HEART SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communication between the left and the right chambers of the heart. The abnormal blood flow inside the heart may be caused by defects in the ATRIAL SEPTUM, the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM, or both.
Enlargement of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This increase in ventricular mass is often attributed to PULMONARY HYPERTENSION and is a contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.
A rare form of supraventricular tachycardia caused by automatic, not reentrant, conduction initiated from sites at the atrioventricular junction, but not the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE.

A specific pair of GROUP G CHROMOSOMES of the human chromosome classification.
The condition of an anatomical structure's being dilated beyond normal dimensions.
A congenital anomaly caused by the failed development of TRUNCUS ARTERIOSUS into separate AORTA and PULMONARY ARTERY. It is characterized by a single arterial trunk that forms the outlet for both HEART VENTRICLES and gives rise to the systemic, pulmonary, and coronary arteries. It is always accompanied by a ventricular septal defect.
Surgery performed on the heart or blood vessels.
An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
The period following a surgical operation.
A repeat operation for the same condition in the same patient due to disease progression or recurrence, or as followup to failed previous surgery.
Surgical insertion of synthetic material to repair injured or diseased heart valves.

Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
An independent state consisting of three islands in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily. Its capital is Valetta. The major island is Malta, the two smaller islands are Comino and Gozo. It was a Phoenician and Carthaginian colony, captured by the Romans in 218 B.C. It was overrun by Saracens in 870, taken by the Normans in 1090, and subsequently held by the French and later the British who allotted them a dominion government in 1921. It became a crown colony in 1933, achieving independence in 1964. The name possibly comes from a pre-Indoeuropean root mel, high, referring to its rocks, but a more picturesque origin derives the name from the Greek melitta or melissa, honey, with reference to its early fame for its honey production. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p719 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p330)
A cardiovascular procedure performed to create a blood supply to the PULMONARY CIRCULATION. It involves making a connection between the subclavian, or carotid branch of the AORTA, or the AORTIC ARCH to the PULMONARY ARTERY.
A type of imaging technique used primarily in the field of cardiology. By coordinating the fast gradient-echo MRI sequence with retrospective ECG-gating, numerous short time frames evenly spaced in the cardiac cycle are produced. These images are laced together in a cinematic display so that wall motion of the ventricles, valve motion, and blood flow patterns in the heart and great vessels can be visualized.
Incomplete transposition of the great vessels in which both the AORTA and the PULMONARY ARTERY arise from the RIGHT VENTRICLE. The only outlet of the LEFT VENTRICLE is a large ventricular septal defect (VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS or VSD). The various subtypes are classified by the location of the septal defect, such as subaortic, subpulmonary, or noncommitted.
The amount of BLOOD pumped out of the HEART per beat, not to be confused with cardiac output (volume/time). It is calculated as the difference between the end-diastolic volume and the end-systolic volume.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.
A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which the AORTA arises entirely from the RIGHT VENTRICLE, and the PULMONARY ARTERY arises from the LEFT VENTRICLE. Consequently, the pulmonary and the systemic circulations are parallel and not sequential, so that the venous return from the peripheral circulation is re-circulated by the right ventricle via aorta to the systemic circulation without being oxygenated in the lungs. This is a potentially lethal form of heart disease in newborns and infants.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the ATRIAL SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. Classification of atrial septal defects is based on location of the communication and types of incomplete fusion of atrial septa with the ENDOCARDIAL CUSHIONS in the fetal heart. They include ostium primum, ostium secundum, sinus venosus, and coronary sinus defects.
Care alleviating symptoms without curing the underlying disease. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.

Outcome of pregnancy in women with congenital shunt lesions. (1/500)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome of pregnancy in women with congenital shunt lesions. SETTING: Retrospective study in a tertiary care centre. METHODS: Pregnancy history was obtained by a standardised questionnaire and medical records were reviewed. PATIENTS: 175 women were identified, at a mean (SD) age of 42 (14) years. Pregnancies occurred in 126 women: 50 with an atrial septal defect, 22 with a ventricular septal defect, 22 with an atrioventricular septal defect, 19 with tetralogy of Fallot, and 13 with other complex shunt lesions. RESULTS: 309 pregnancies were reported by 126 woman (2.5 (1.6) pregnancies per woman). The shortening fraction of the systemic ventricle was 40 (8)%, and 98% were in New York Heart Association class I-II at last follow up. Spontaneous abortions occurred in 17% of pregnancies (abortion rate, 0.4 (0.9) per woman). Gestational age of the 241 newborn infants was 8.8 (0.8) months. There were no maternal deaths related to pregnancy. Pre-eclampsia and embolic events were observed in 1.3% and 0.6%, respectively of all pregnancies. Women with complex shunt lesions more often underwent caesarean section (70% v 15-30%, p = 0.005) and gave birth to smaller babies for equivalent gestation (2577 (671) g v 3016 (572) to 3207 (610) g, p < 0.05). The recurrence risk of congenital heart disease was 2.5%. CONCLUSIONS: The outcome of pregnancy is favourable in women with congenital shunt lesions if their functional class and their systolic ventricular function are good. Such patients can be reassured.  (+info)

Echocardiographic and morphological correlations in tetralogy of Fallot. (2/500)

AIMS: Our aim was to clarify the location and structure of the outlet septum relative to the free-standing subpulmonary infundibulum in the setting of tetralogy of Fallot and to examine its relationship to the other components of the subpulmonary outflow tract, determining their potential influence on clinical outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied prospectively 41 patients with tetralogy of Fallot (mean age 14 +/- 10.9 months) prior to surgical repair, and compared them with 15 patients undergoing closure of a ventricular septal defect associated with malalignment of the outlet septum but no subpulmonary infundibular stenosis (Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect), and 20 healthy controls. We also examined available autopsied hearts from cases with uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot (8) and Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect (13). Data were indexed for body surface area, and diameter of the tricuspid valve, respectively. The overall length of the subpulmonary infundibulum, including the extent of the muscular outlet septum, was significantly greater for patients with tetralogy of Fallot compared to normals (2.34 +/- 0.6 vs 1.46 +/- 0.34 cm/BSA0.5, P<0.001), whereas the difference between those with tetralogy of Fallot and an Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect was confined to the degree of narrowing of the subpulmonary outlet (0.43 +/- 0.22 vs 2.17 +/- 0.64 cm/BSA0.5, P<0.001). Within the tetralogy of Fallot group, there were linear relationships between deviation of the outlet septum (r= -0.61, P<0.005) and the diameter of the pulmonary valvar orifice (r=0.75, P<0.001), suggesting that growth of the pulmonary arteries may be related to this feature. When patients requiring a transannular patch as part of their surgical repair were compared with those not needing this procedure, differences were found in the diameter of the pulmonary valvar orifice and the pulmonary trunk, but not in the dimensions of the outlet septum. CONCLUSION: The position of the outlet septum in relationship to the remainder of the muscular subpulmonary infundibulum represents a hallmark of tetralogy of Fallot, permitting its differentiation from Eisenmenger ventricular septal defects and normal hearts.  (+info)

Decreased left ventricular filling pressure 8 months after corrective surgery in a 55-year-old man with tetralogy of Fallot: adaptation for increased preload. (3/500)

A 55-year-old man with tetralogy of Fallot underwent corrective surgery. Left ventricular filling pressure increased markedly with increased left ventricular volume one month after surgery, then decreased over the next 7 months, presumably due to increased left ventricular compliance.  (+info)

Disopyramide improves hypoxia in patients with tetralogy of Fallot through a negative inotropic action. (4/500)

The hemodynamic and right ventricular volumetric effects of disopyramide were investigated in patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TF). Intracardiac pressure and oxygen saturation were measured, before and after intravenous administration of disopyramide (2 mg/kg) in 7 patients who had not had previous surgery. Right ventricular volume and the diameter of its outflow tract were analyzed in these 7 and in a further 4 patients with a previous shunt. Aortic oxygen saturation increased from 90.4+/-7.5 (mean+/-SD) to 94.1+/-5.5% (p<0.05) with an increase in pulmonary blood flow and pressure. The systolic pressure gradient between the main pulmonary artery and the right ventricle decreased from 59+/-8 to 42+/-9 mmHg (p<0.01). Aortic pressure fell from 77+/-5 to 67+/-4 mmHg (p<0.05). Systemic vascular resistance increased from 15.3+/-2.2 to 19.4+/-3.3 u x m2 (p<0.05). Pulmonary vascular resistance remained unchanged. The diastolic and systolic diameter indices of the right ventricular outflow tract increased from 17.8+/-3.8 to 20.5+/-3.4 and from 6.5+/-3.0 to 10.4+/-2.2 mm/m2, respectively (p<0.01), whereas the right ventricular ejection fraction decreased. Disopyramide improves systemic oxygen saturation in patients with TF through its negative inotropic action on the right ventricle.  (+info)

The myocardial profile of the cytosolic isozymes of creatine kinase is apparently not related to cyanosis in congenital heart disease. (5/500)

BACKGROUND: CKMB, the cardiac-specific heterodimer of cytosolic creatine-kinase (CK), is developmentally and physiologically regulated, tissue hypoxia being a proposed regulator. In patients with cyanotic heart disease the myocardium is perfused with partially saturated blood. We questioned whether the myocardium of cyanotic subjects contains higher proportions of CKMB. MATERIALS AND METHODS: CK activity, the distribution of cytosolic CK isozymes, activity of lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), and tissue protein content were determined in obstructive tissues removed at corrective surgery of patients with congenital heart defects. Cyanotic (n = 13) and acyanotic (n = 12) subjects were compared. RESULTS: In cyanotic and acyanotic patients, CK activity was 8.4 +/- 0.6 and 7.6 +/- 0.6 IU/mg protein and the proportion of CKMB was 21 +/- 1.4 and 22 +/- 2. 0% (mean +/- S.E.M), respectively. In the two groups of patients, the activity related to the B subunit corresponded to the steady-state level of the CKBmRNA. The tissue content of protein and the activities of CK and LDH were similar in cyanotic and acyanotic subjects and increased with the age. CONCLUSIONS: The lack of difference in CKMB distribution between the cyanotic and acyanotic patients may either indicate that hypooxygenation is not a regulator of CK isozyme expression, or may be attributed to the already high proportion of this isozyme in hypertrophied, obstructive tissues. Recruitment of additional CKMB, in the cyanotic hearts, may thus not be required.  (+info)

Accuracy of electrocardiographic and echocardiographic indices in predicting life threatening ventricular arrhythmias in patients operated for tetralogy of Fallot. (6/500)

OBJECTIVE: To validate the accuracy of the prognostic significance of non-invasive clinical diagnostic indices as predictors of sustained ventricular tachycardia (sVT) or fibrillation (VF) in patients undergoing repair for tetralogy of Fallot. METHODS: One way analysis of variance and pairwise comparison of the values with the Bonferroni correction, logistic multivariate analysis, and ordinal logistic analysis were used to study quantitative electrocardiographic and echocardiographic variables in 66 patients who had undergone surgery for tetralogy of Fallot by ventriculotomy at a mean (SD) age of 11.8 (9.5) years. The mean (SD) period of follow up was 16.1 (5.7) years after surgery. RESULTS: Four groups of patients were identified by ECG and 24 hour Holter monitoring: 19 (28.7%) without ventricular arrhythmias, 34 (51.5%) with minor ventricular arrhythmias, seven (10.6%) with non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (nsVT), and six (9.0%) with sVT or VF. One way analysis indicated significant differences in QT dispersion (QTd) and end diastolic volume of the right ventricle (EDVRV) among the groups. Univariate logistic analysis showed EDVRV, QTd, and QRS duration to be significantly associated with sVT or VF. Stepwise multivariate analysis and ordinal logistic analysis showed QTd to be preferable to QRS duration as an indicator, because it was unrelated to EDVRV, and was capable of separating different probability curves for nsVT as opposed to sVT or VF. CONCLUSIONS: Stratification of patients undergoing corrective surgery for tetralogy of Fallot and at risk of life threatening arrhythmias is possible by simple and inexpensive means, which provide sensitive and specific indices.  (+info)

Reduced heart rate variability following repair of tetralogy of Fallot. (7/500)

OBJECTIVE: To examine autonomic function as assessed by heart rate variability in patients 10 or more years after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, and to relate this to cardiac structure, function, and electrocardiographic indices. METHODS: Heart rate variability was measured by standard time domain techniques on a 24 hour Holter ECG in 28 patients, aged 12 to 34 years (mean 19.5), who had undergone repair of tetralogy of Fallot at least 10 years previously. Echocardiography was performed to assess left ventricular size and function, right ventricular size and pressure, and any proximal pulmonary arterial stenosis. Right ventricular function was evaluated by radionuclide scan. QRS duration, QT interval, and QT dispersion were measured on a standard 12 lead ECG. Measurements of heart rate variability were compared with values from 28 age matched healthy controls (mean age 19.9 years). Interrelations between variables were assessed using Pearson correlation coefficients and stepwise regression analysis. RESULTS: Heart rate variability was reduced, compared with values for age matched normal controls, in 12 of the 28 patients. Reduced heart rate variability was associated with increased age, increased right ventricular size and pressure, and widening of the QRS complex. CONCLUSIONS: Reduced heart rate variability is a feature following repair of tetralogy of Fallot. It is associated with increasing age, impaired right ventricular haemodynamics, and widening of the QRS complex. Under these circumstances, reduced heart rate variability may be a marker for deteriorating right ventricular function. Increased QRS duration has been identified as a risk factor for sudden death following repair of tetralogy of Fallot, and impaired cardiac autonomic control may be one of the mechanisms involved.  (+info)

Tetralogy of Fallot in the fetus: findings at targeted sonography. (8/500)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the findings of tetralogy of Fallot in various fetal sonographic views. METHODS: We reviewed the fetal sonograms and medical records of 20 fetuses with prenatal diagnosis of tetralogy of Fallot. We analyzed the indications for targeted sonography, the abnormalities seen in various sonographic views, the postnatal echocardiographic and angiographic findings and autopsy findings. RESULTS: The most common indication for targeted sonography was an abnormal (n = 12) or inadequate (n = 3) finding on sonographic screening in which the abnormality was most frequently found on the three-vessel view (n = 9). The key pathological features of tetralogy of Fallot were uniformly demonstrated in the ventricular outflow tract, three-vessel and short-axis views. The ductus arteriosus was small in 70% of cases and not identifiable in the remaining fetuses. In three of six fetuses with no identifiable ductus, the ductus was shown to be absent at autopsy. The direction of ductal flow was variable. CONCLUSION: The key features of tetralogy of Fallot were always demonstrable in the ventricular outflow tract, three-vessel and short-axis views. The most common reason for referral was the abnormal three-vessel view.  (+info)

Treatment of Tetralogy of Fallot is an uncommon condition consisting of four defects within the heart structures of infants and young children. Together these defects cause reduced blood flow to the lungs and mixing of blood from both sides of the heart. This results in oxygen-poor blood flowing out of the heart and into the body. Consequently, infants and children with tetralogy of Fallot usually have blue-tinged skin, Tetralogy of Fallot, which is present at birth, is usually diagnosed during infancy. However, it may not be detected until later in life, depending on the severity of the heart defects and symptoms. Tetralogy of Fallot occurs in about five out of every 10,000 babies and affects males and females equally. With early diagnosis followed by corrective surgery and ongoing care, the majority of children with tetralogy of Fallot survive to adulthood, Tetralogy Of Fallot, Tetrology Of Fallot, Tetralogy Of Fallot Definition, Tetralogy Of Fallot Diagnosis, Tetralogy Of Fallot Symptoms, Tetralogy

Tetralogy of Fallot includes a Large Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), the aorta overrides left and right ventricles, right ventricular outflow tract is obstructed, and the wall of the right ventricle thickens. More blood shunts through the VSD to the left side as the obstruction impedes the RV outflow, resulting in Cyanosis;[1] Tetralogy of Fallot has four key features. A Ventricular Septal Defect (a hole between the ventricles) and many levels of obstruction from the right ventricle to the lungs (Pulmonary Stenosis) are the most important. Also, the Aorta (major artery from the heart to the body) lies directly over the Ventricular Septal Defect, and the right ventricle develops thickened muscle.[2]. Adults with Tetralogy of Fallot suffer shortness of breath and cant tolerate exercise. Brain abscesses, strokes and heart infections can arise as complications. Tetralogy of Fallot patients fingers may have clubbing which is enlargements at the distal ends. If Tetralogy of Fallot remains ...
2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Advances in surgical techniques in tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) patients have improved survival of these patients into adulthood. The procedure requires right ventricular outflow tract or trans-annular patch with resultant pulmonary stenosis and/or regurgitation. As such, adult patients seen with this condition may have increasing right ventricular hypertrophy and/or right ventricular dilation. Recently, the Sapien XT valve (Edwards Lifesciences, CA) was approved by the FDA for pulmonary implantation. In some cases, advancing the valve in right ventricular outflow tract is difficult. This is a case series of delivering Sapien XT valves in TOF patients with severe pulmonary regurgitation and/or stenosis, using the anchor balloon, buddy wire, and the novel, wire and sheath techniques. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc ...
NKX2-5, GATA4 and HAND1 are essential for heart development, however, little is known regarding their epigenetic regulation in the pathogenesis of tetralogy of fallot (TOF). Methylation levels were measured in three regions of NKX2-5 (M1: -1596 bp ~ -1374 bp, M2: -159 bp ~ 217 bp and M3: 1058 bp ~ 1524 bp), one region of GATA4 (M: -392 bp ~ 107 bp) and three regions of HAND1 (M1: -887 bp ~ -414 bp, M2: -436 bp ~ 2 bp and M3: 37 bp ~ 398 bp) using the Sequenom MassARRAY platform. QRT-PCR was used to analyze NKX2-5 and HAND1 mRNA levels in the right ventricular myocardium of TOF patients. TOF patients had a significantly higher NKX2-5_M3 median methylation level than controls (41.65% vs. 22.18%; p = 0.0074; interquartile range [IQR]: 30.46%-53.35%, N = 30 and 20.07%-24.31%, N = 5; respectively). The HAND1_M1 median methylation level was also significantly higher in TOF patients than controls (30.05% vs. 17.54%; p = 0.0054; IQR: 20.77%-40.89%, N = 30 and IQR: 14.69%-20.64%; N = 6; respectively). The
In the operative correction of tetralogy of Fallot with a severely narrowed right ventricular outflow tract, widening of the pulmonic annulus is frequently necessary to prevent a high residual pressure gradient and to reduce right ventricular pressure overload. This can be accomplished by incising the pulmonic annulus and inserting a patch graft across the valve, but this usually results in pulmonary valvular insufficiency.. Of 426 patients who underwent total correction of Fallots tetralogy between 1959 and 1970, 63 required a patch across the pulmonic annulus. The mortality rate for this group was 30.1%, compared with a total mortality among the 426 patients of 18%. The high mortality rate is influenced by the fact that the majority were corrected in the early years of the series.. Fifteen patients were restudied by cardiac catheterization and cineangiography an average of 9.1 years after total correction. Twelve patients were asymptomatic and three patients had only mild symptoms on exertion ...

Right ventricular diastolic function in patients with repair of tetralogy of Fallot. In the present study, we demonstrated abnormalities in right ventricular diastolic function in young patients with residual pulmonary regurgitation after surgical correction of tetralogy of Fallot. The filling pattern in group I, characterized by prolonged early filling, as indicated by longer deceleration times, and low early filling rates, is consistent with impaired relaxation (14,17-19). When restriction to filling occurs, early filling rates increase and deceleration time decreases, as was observed in group II (17,19). Differences in diastolic function between the patient groups were limited and most likely reflect a continuum of changes, with signs of impaired relaxation and restriction to filling present in both groups (14,17). In patients with predominantly restrictive right ventricular physiology, exercise performance was clearly diminished. This result could only be explained by differences in ...

Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) is the most common cyanotic congenital heart disease and the population of ToF repair survivors is growing rapidly. Adults with repaired ToF develop late complications. The aim of this study was to describe and analyze long-term follow-up of patients with repaired ToF. This is a retrospective cohort study. Consecutive 83 patients with repaired ToF who did not undergo pulmonary valve replacement were included. Mean age of all patients was 30.5 ± 10.7. There were 49 (59%) male. Patients were divided into two groups according to the time since the repair (| 25 years and ≥ 25 years). The electrocardiographic (ECG), cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), echocardiographic and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) data were reviewed retrospectively. In CPET values were not significantly different in the two groups. In CMR volumes of left and right ventricles were not significantly different in the two groups. There were no differences between the groups in ventricular ejection

Because of the wide variability of pulmonary blood supply, diagnosis and surgical management of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with pulmonary atresia (PA) is more difficult than that of classic tetralogy of Fallot, and therefore, it is worthy of separate consideration. Tetralogy of Fallot is composed of a malaligned ventricular septal defect (VSD...
A cohort of 61 consecutive patients 24 months of age of younger had palliative shunts for symptoms of tetralogy of Fallot during a 12-year period. Thirty-six of these patients have been followed through definitive intracardiac repair or to death. For analysis palliative operations were separated into two six-year periods, 1965--1970. During the first period seven of 30 infants operated on died; all 31 infants operated on during the second period survived. The Waterston anastomosis was performed most frequently (67%) during the first period; the Blalock-Taussig anastomosis was performed in 68% of infants during the second period. Of 54 hospital survivors, three died before definitive intracardiac repair. Two of the three interim deaths were related to heart disease. Twenty-six of the remaining 51 patients have had definitive intracardiac repair with two deaths (8%). Twenty-four in this group had intracardiac repair since 1973 with one hospital death (4%). The cumulative mortality for the entire ...

Background: Residual pulmonary regurgitation following repair of tetralogy of Fallot, in particular the use of a transannular patch, has been shown to correlate with the development of right ventricular dysfunction. Optimal timing of pulmonary valve replacement, therefore, is important to preserve right ventricular function. Several recent studies suggested that a threshold of right ventricular end-diastolic volume for intervention, in order to preserve the likelihood of adequate reverse remodeling, is in the region of 150 to 200 ml/m2 body surface area. However, there is evidence that right ventricular function does not always recover following pulmonary valve replacement even if the end-diastolic volume is below this cut-off.. In addition, previous studies suggested that early dysfunction may be present before symptoms occur. However, early dysfunction is difficult to assess.. Methods: Analysis of right ventricular function by pressure-volume loops has been extensively evaluated in ...
Purpose:To compare indexed right ventricular (RV) end-diastolic volume (RVEDVi) and the ratio of RV volume to left ventricular (LV) volume (RV/LV ratio) in prediction of significant pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is one of the most common congenital heart disorders (CHDs). This condition is classified as a cyanotic heart disorder, because tetralogy of Fallot results in an inadequate flow of blood to the lungs for oxygenation (right-to-left shunt) (see the following image).
The tetralogy of Fallot is a complex of congenital malformation of the heart which consists of a ventricular septal defect, right ventricular hypertrophy with outflow tract obstruction (infundibular stenosis), rightward-displaced overriding aorta, and pulmonary stenosis. Patients with the tetralogy are usually cyanotic, but may not be (the so-called pink tet). Remediation is surgical. (The condition is a tetralogy because it has four basic elements, by the way.) ...
Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common form of cyanotic congenital heart disease, and occurs in 4-5 of 10 000 live births.1 Advances in the early management have led to a survival of over 95% into adulthood.2 However, longstanding RV overload due to pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after cardiac surgery may lead to RV dysfunction and subsequently heart failure, sustained ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death.3 ,4 Consequently, morbidity and mortality rise substantially from the third decade of life in patients with repaired TOF (rTOF).5 Pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) can be performed by implantation of several types of RV outflow tract conduits, usually bioprosthetic valves or homografts.6 ,7 Early beneficial effects after PVR include a reduction in RV volumes, a decrease of PR and an improvement in New York Heart Association functional class.6 ,8 ,9 However, a major concern after PVR is the need for future reoperations or reinterventions due to bioprosthetic conduit or homograft ...
Science has not yet identified a specific cause for tetralogy of Fallot in all cases, but genetics is believed to play a role. Someone born with TOF seems more likely to have a child with it.. Mothers who contract rubella or other viral illnesses during their pregnancies are at a higher risk of giving birth to babies with TOF. Other risk factors and conditions include poor nutrition, alcohol abuse, diabetes, and mothers age (over 40).. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the presence of certain environmental factors, such as carbon monoxide, might increase a mothers chances of delivering a baby with TOF. In addition, children who have certain genetic disorders, such as Down syndrome and DiGeorge syndrome, often have congenital heart defects, including tetralogy of Fallot.. ...

Chromosome 22q11 fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) studies were performed on 33 consecutive individuals attending a paediatric cardiology clinic with tetralogy of Fallot. Seven children had 22q11 microdeletions but only four had other clinical features associated with the newly recognised chromosome 22 deletion syndrome (CATCH 22). Chromosome 22q11 FISH studies should therefore be performed on all patients with tetralogy of Fallot.. ...

Surgery is required to repair tetralogy of Fallot. Typically in the first few months of life we will perform open heart surgery to patch the hole (VSD) and widen the pulmonary valve or artery.. In some cases, depending on the unique needs of the patient, we will perform a temporary repair until a complete repair can be done. The temporary repair involves connecting the pulmonary arteries (which carry blood from heart to lungs) with one of the large arteries that carry blood away from the heart to the body. This increases the amount of blood that reaches the lungs, and so increases the amount of oxygen in the blood.. ...

Feedback on other responses. iv. Tetralogy of Fallot. Tetralogy of Fallot can be caused by environmental or genetic factors. Drugs (eg isotretinoin) have been linked with this congenital heart defect but there is no convincing evidence linking antipsychotics to tetralogy of Fallot.. Tetralogy of Fallot comprises: (a) a hole in the wall (septum) between the two ventricles; (b) narrowing of the valve at the top of the right ventricle (pulmonary valve) that allows blood to enter the pulmonary artery on its way to the lungs; (c) mis-positioned aorta such that the blood vessel lies directly above the hole between the ventricles; and (d) thickening of the muscle around the right ventricle (right ventricular hypertrophy).. v. Short QTc syndrome. Antipsychotics are associated prolongation (rather than shortening) of QT interval, which represents an interference with the electromechanical function of the heart and which can lead to arrhythmia and death.. Short QTc syndrome is linked to genetic factors. ...
Surgery is the only definitive treatment for children with tetralogy of Fallot. Your doctors will likely schedule your childs surgery by the time he or she turns one year old.. During the surgery, a pediatric cardiac surgeon will fix the hole between the ventricles (the ventricular septal defect) using a patch. The surgeon will also widen the pulmonary artery and fix any problems with the pulmonary valve. This repair will help more blood reach the lungs. The entire procedure is known as intra-cardiac repair.. If your child is too ill or too small for intra-cardiac repair, surgeons will create a temporary solution called a shunt. This is a bypass from the aorta to the pulmonary artery, which will increase blood flow to the lungs until your child is big enough for the final procedure.. top. ...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary regurgitation (PR) is an important determinant of outcome after repair of tetralogy of Fallot. Baseline PR was measured by magnetic resonance (MR) phase velocity mapping and from real-time right ventricular pressure-volume loops with a conductance catheter. Subsequently, the impact of two loading maneuvers (increased airway pressure, simulated branch pulmonary artery stenosis) on PR was assessed by the conductance catheter method. METHODS AND RESULTS: Thirteen patients, 3 to 35 years after tetralogy of Fallot repair or pulmonary valvotomy, had PR measured by MR phase velocity mapping while breathing spontaneously ...

In patients with tetralogy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve, the dilated pulmonary arteries sometimes result in bronchial compression and pulmonary symptoms due to airway obstruction, recurrent pulmonary infection, and development of bronchiectas
Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital cardiac malformation that consists of an interventricular communication, also known as a ventricular septal defect, obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract, override of the ventricular septum by the aortic root, and right ventricular hypertrophy. This combination of lesions occurs in 3 of every 10,000 live births, and accounts for 7-10% of all congenital cardiac malformations. Patients nowadays usually present as neonates, with cyanosis of varying intensity based on the degree of obstruction to flow of blood to the lungs. The aetiology is multifactorial, but reported associations include untreated maternal diabetes, phenylketonuria, and intake of retinoic acid. Associated chromosomal anomalies can include trisomies 21, 18, and 13, but recent experience points to the much more frequent association of microdeletions of chromosome 22. The risk of recurrence in families is 3%. Useful diagnostic tests are the chest radiograph, electrocardiogram, and
Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a congenital heart defect that is present at birth. Symptoms include episodes of bluish color to the skin. When affected babies cry or have a bowel movement, they may develop a tet spell where they turn very blue, have difficulty breathing, become limp, and occasionally lose consciousness. Other symptoms may include a heart murmur, finger clubbing, and easy tiring upon breastfeeding. The cause is typically not known. Risk factors include a mother who uses alcohol, has diabetes, is over the age of 40, or gets rubella during pregnancy. It may also be associated with Down syndrome. Classically there are four defects: a ventricular septal defect, a hole between the two ventricles pulmonary stenosis, narrowing of the exit from the right ventricle right ventricular hypertrophy, enlargement of the right ventricle an overriding aorta, which allows blood from both ventricles to enter the aorta TOF is typically treated by open heart surgery in the first year of life. Timing ...
Background: The purpose of this investigation was to test the hypothesis that flow patterns in the right ventricle are abnormal in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). High-resolution echocardiographic contrast particle imaging velocimetry was used to investigate rotation intensity and kinetic energy dissipation of right ventricular (RV) flow in patients with TOF compared with normal controls. Methods: Forty-one subjects (16 with repaired TOF and varying degrees of RV dilation and 25 normal controls) underwent prospective contrast imaging using the lipid-encapsulated microbubble (Definity) on Sequoia systems. A mechanical index of 0.4, three-beat high-frame rate (,60 Hz) captures, and harmonic frequencies were used. Rotation intensity and kinetic energy dissipation of flow in the right and left ventricles were studied (Hyperflow). Ventricular volumes and ejection fractions in all subjects were derived from same-day cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Results: Measurable planar maps ...

The operation plan was to perform total repair of ToF through the left anterior minithoracotomy. The patient was positioned with an inflatable pillow under the left chest. The anesthesiologist inserted venous cannula in the right internal jugular vein. The right femoral artery and vein preparation was made for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). After heparin was given, femoral arterial and venous cannulations were carried out.. A 6 cm skin incision was performed over the 4th intercostal space (ICS) from the left sternal border to the left midclavicular line, and the left pleural space was entered through the same ICS.. Before CPB was started, peak between right ventricle (RV) and left ventricle (LV) pressure ratio was measured. For better exposure, the authors encircled the ascending aorta with the tape. The cardioplegia catheter was inserted under direct vision in the aortic root. The Chitwood cross-clamp was inserted in the second ICS at the left anterior axillary line. After the aortic cross-clamp ...
A 50-year-old man presented with sustained wide complex tachycardia and was treated with cardioversion. He gave a history of 2 such episodes within the past 7 years, requiring cardioversion each time. Ten years previously, he had undergone surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot. Review of operative notes indicated that the procedure included patch closure of the ventricular septal defect, right ventricular outflow tract resection, repair with a transannular patch, and pulmonary valve replacement with a porcine valve.. Editors Perspective see p 557. ECG recorded during the tachycardia showed a regular wide complex tachycardia at a rate of 240 beats per minute of left bundle branch block morphology with left axis deviation. ECG in sinus rhythm showed PR interval of 200 ms, right bundle branch block with normal axis, and QRS duration of 170 ms. Echocardiography showed mild right ventricular dilatation with normal left and right ventricular function. The ventricular septum was intact, there was no ...
Surgical management of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) results in anatomic and functional abnormalities in the majority of patients. Although right ventricular volume load due to severe pulmonary regurgitation can be tolerated for many years, there is now evidence that the compensatory mechanisms of the right ventricular myocardium ultimately fail and that if the volume load is not eliminated or reduced by pulmonary valve replacement the dysfunction might be irreversible. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has evolved during the last 2 decades as the reference standard imaging modality to assess the anatomic and functional sequelae in patients with repaired TOF ...

In rare cases, your child may need a temporary procedure to increase blood flow to the lungs until complete repair can be done. A Surgical shunt may be required to provide stable pulmonary blood flow with complete repair deferred until your child is older. Your child may also need a cardiac catheterization procedure. This will give the doctor more details about the condition. The doctor may also use the procedure to widen the pulmonary valve before the surgery. To widen the valve, the doctor uses a thin, flexible tube (catheter) with a balloon to stretch the valve open. Your childs cardiologist will tell you more about this, if needed.. ...
Pulmonary regurgitation is rare and is infrequently symptomatic. It gradually develops over many years and results in volume overload and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. It can be congenital or acquired, caused by conditions that increase pulmonary artery pressure, such as left ventricular (LV) dysfunction or severe lung disease. The acquired form occurs from any secondary cause that leads to pulmonary regurgitation through increased pulmonary pressure secondary to left-sided failure, or after surgical intervention for tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary stenosis, or pulmonary atresia. Isolated pulmonary regurgitation occurs as a result of any cause that impacts the valve directly, such as endocarditis. The murmur of pulmonary regurgitation is diastolic and is associated with RV lift. [1] Ansari A. Isolated pulmonary valvular regurgitation: current perspectives.

In a group of 339 patients with acute myocardial infarction treated in a coronary care unit, 273 left the unit while improving and were expected to leave hospital alive; 23 had a cardiac arrest or died suddenly while still in hospital-17 died immediately or after temporary resuscitation and six were resuscitated to leave hospital alive. Ventricular fibrillation was found in 13 of the 20 patients attended by the cardiac arrest team. The incidents were scattered from the 4th to the 24th day after the onset of infarction. Risk factors in these late sudden death patients were compared with the 250 patients who left the unit while improving and did not die or suffer cardiac arrest. The patients susceptible to late sudden death were characterized early in their hospital course by the findings of severe, predominantly anterior infarction, left ventricular failure, persistent sinus tachycardia, and frequent ventricular arrhythmias. It is suggested that such patients be chosen for prolonged observation ...
RESULTS: A total of 805 patients with CHD were managed during the period. The age range was 9 days to 18 years, with a mean age of one and half years. The most common CHD managed was tetralogy of Fallot (38.5%), followed by ventricular septal defect (15.4%) and atrial septal defect (14.8%). Treatment received varied from modified Blalock-Taussig shunt to intracardiac repair among others. The length of hospital stay ranged from 7 days to 21 days with average of 9.3 days. The outcome depended on the type of CHD, time of presentation, associated comorbidity and the extent of accuracy of preoperative echocardiography diagnosis. The success rate of 85-95% on the average was recorded ...
This is the corrective surgery in which the condition is treated in most of the children within their first year of life. The procedure involves placing a patch on the ventricular septal defect to close the hole between the two ventricles along with widening the pulmonary valve and pulmonary arteries, which results in an increased blood flow to the lungs. Upon completion of the procedure, the symptoms are diminished due to oxygen level increase in the blood. In some cases, when babies are born prematurely or their pulmonary arteries are not yet fully developed (hypoplastic), there might be a need for a temporary surgery before the main one. This temporary surgery involves creating a bypass between the aorta and the pulmonary arteries to increase blood flow to the lungs. When the time comes for the intercardiac repair, the bypass is removed.. ...

A detailed Anatomy Scan at around 20 weeks is offered to screen for abnormalities in the baby including cardiac defects but at this time the heart is still only the size of a pea and the detection rates are poor across the UK.. Originally most hospitals check only One View, the 4 Chamber View, which has been around for about 20 years and looks at the four main pumping chambers (left and right atria and left and right ventricles). The 4-chamber view is still the most crucial view, as it takes into account the hearts size/position and examines in detail the four pumping chambers (for disproportion), walls & septum.. The 4 Chamber View will generally pick up about half of fetal cardiac anomalies. However, just looking at the 4-chamber view can result in missing important problems such as Tetralogy of Fallot, hidden septal defects which are; holes in the midline wall that divides the left and right side of the heart, Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) where the main vessels supplying ...

Tara Sharp will never forget the moment she received the sonogram results.. The doctor said, Theres something wrong with the babys heart; we dont know if she will survive, Sharp said. I was devastated.. Six months pregnant, Tara and her husband, Ben, were eagerly awaiting their second child. Now, instead of telling their older daughter to expect a sister, they wondered if the baby would live.. A genetic counselor soon asked about family history of heart problems. One aunt, Sharp learned from her mother, had a mild version of tetralogy of Fallot, the defect detected in a severe form on her own babys sonogram. But Sharps mom, Heather, revealed more: More than 50 babies on her family tree, including one of Heathers own siblings, had died in infancy because of severe versions of the same heart defect.

There are only 2 figures and the text in places is verbose, and very poorly structured for ease of reading/understanding. * Introduction - No text here? This is where the reader starts and it should grab their attention to your topic. * History - Good early background. Quoted text should be indented. You have included only a few time points in the disease up to 1945-50s and only broadly thereafter. The text is also very clinically technical, suggesting that you have just copied without understanding the content itself. * Signs and Symptoms - this should have subsections for each description. * Genetics/Aetiology - No text here? * Pathophysiology and Abnormalities - Seems to overlap with the Signs and Symptoms content. * Diagnostic Tests - you name the tests but do not describe how they ...
When my son was born, I was on Medi-Cal. Income and asset requirements are different when you are pregnant, thankfully, or else we would not qualify. I own my home; I have money in the bank; I own some stocks. All of this would disqualify me under normal circumstances, despite my income, for Medi-Cal. Exceptions are made from pregnant women and children.. When my son was born, I was working under a grant as a school readiness teacher. Since it was grant funded, the school district would only grant me temporary status, thus no access to employer-based group plan health insurance that by law would have to cover a preexisting condition. Try buying health insurance privately when you are pregnant. It was impossible.. After my son was born, the Medi-Cal coverage lasted for two months. He was diagnosed at two weeks of age with Tetralogy of Fallot, and the social workers were great at getting him signed up for California Childrens Services (CCS). We automatically qualified since I was on Medi-Cal. Our ...
When writers marry other writers, the union can prove to be painfully inequitable. One career often soars above the other, sometimes in a permanent fashion, with the spouse dwelling seemingly in the shadows. Nick Laird, despite his achievements as a prize-winning poet, is probably primarily recognizable to the public as the husband of Zadie Smith. Likewise, Raymond Carvers widow, Tess Gallagher, is an accomplished but unheralded poet herself. Not since Mary and Percy Bysshe Shelley, one could argue, has there been a writer-couple of parallel impact, a husband and wife duo making contributions of equal standing to literary history.. It was revealed last year that global phenomenon Elena Ferrante was married to another writer, Domenico Starnone, a name known primarily in Italian literary circles. Ferrante, of course, has achieved deserved renown in America and worldwide for her astounding Neapolitan tetralogy. As of now, Starnone, winner of one of Europes most prestigious literary awards, the ...
The story started when Luc Montagnier asked me if Id be interested in cloning the AIDS virus. You know the answer!. Even before the publication of Bob Gallos tetralogy, the trans-Atlantic squabble was essentially in place. Apart from priority and nomenclature, the AIDS virus had to be akin to HTLV-1 and -2, the only bona fide human retroviruses of the day. All my early HIV work was done against this tense background. Getting a retrovirus cloned and sequenced was the only way to really know what you were up against, so the goal was obvious. By August 1984 we had five full-length molecular clones. One month more and we had a good M13 shotgun library of one of these clones.. To provide context, by 1982 the Sanger group sequenced the 172 kb genome of Epstein-Barr virus by shotgun M13 dideoxy methods. They were #1, nobody else was even a log close to them, certainly not us. And we were up against the Gallo machine as some called it.. Raymond Dedonder, the Director of the Institut Pasteur was ...
