Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital heart disease characterized by several anatomic abnormalities that result in blood bypassing the lungs and traveling to the rest of the body. Since the blood bypasses the lungs, its oxygen content is decreased, and patients commonly experience shortness of breath and exercise intolerance. Although the disorder is classically associated with four distinct anatomic abnormalities, patients can exhibit a variety of structural abnormalities along the same spectrum. It is important for you to consult with your cardiologist
to determine which anatomic abnormalities you have.
performed several staged surgeries to correct Tetralogy of Fallot. However, at present, these are more commonly performed as one large procedure in infancy.
