A patient presented with a unique combination of cardiovascular abnormalities: tetralogy of Fallot, absent pulmonary valve, stenosis of peripheral pulmonary arteries, and partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the azygos vein. The salient aspects and associated lesion of each of these abnormalities are described.

    Objective: To study the effects of closure of interatrial communications associated with a right to left shunt in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) who had a biventricular repair. Design: Retrospective study. Setting: Tertiary referral centre. Patients: 15 patients with CHD with right...

    The article discusses the aim of surgical correction to patients with antrioventricular septa defect or tetralogy of Fallot. The primary goal of surgical correction is to close the interventricular and interatrial communication and to alleviate the obstructed right ventricular outflow tract. In...

    Abstract: Objective: If the pulmonary artery (PA) tree in patients with Fallot''s tetralogy (TOF) is extremely hypoplastic, a shunt procedure may be difficult and not desirable because of side-effects. Moreover, the failing catch-up growth of the pulmonary annulus is well known. In patients with...

    Absent conal septum in tetralogy of Fallot (TF) is usually noted intraoperatively when the ventricular septal defect (VSD) is found abutting the pulmonary valve, its superior rim being nearly inaccessible transatrially, and the posterior rim being separated from the tricuspid valve (TV) by a...

    As far as we are aware, a bicuspid aortic valve has not previously been reported in the setting of tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia. We describe this association in a newborn who presented with a murmur and cyanosis. Echocardiography showed tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia,...
