Tetralogía de Fallot
Tetralogy of Fallot — a centennial review. Tetralogy of Fallot TOF is a type of heart defect present at birth.
A hole between the two bottom chambers ventricles of the heart. It is associated with chromosome 22 deletions and DiGeorge syndrome. This progresses to heart failure which begins in the right ventricle and often leads to left heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy. This allows more blood flow to the lungs by decreasing shunting of deoxygenated blood from the right to left ventricle dd the VSD.
Currently, Blalock-Thomas-Taussig shunts are not normally performed on infants with TOF except for severe variants such as TOF with pulmonary atresia pseudotruncus arteriosus.

Infundibular pulmonic stenosis is mostly caused by overgrowth of falpot heart muscle wall hypertrophy of the septoparietal trabeculae however the events leading to the formation of the overriding aorta are also believed to be a cause. Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital cardiac malformation that consists of an interventricular communication, also known as a ventricular septal defect, obstruction tetrralogia the right ventricular outflow tract, override of the ventricular septum by the aortic root, and right ventricular hypertrophy.
Clinical description Patients nowadays usually present as neonates, with cyanosis of varying intensity based on the degree of obstruction to flow of blood to the lungs. Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia pseudotruncus arteriosus is a severe variant  in which there is complete obstruction atresia of the right ventricular outflow tract, causing an absence of the pulmonary trunk during embryonic development. The pulmonic stenosis is the major cause of the malformations, with ee other associated malformations acting as compensatory mechanisms to the pulmonic stenosis.

Ninety percent of people with total repair as babies develop a progressively leaky pulmonary valve later in life. The open-heart surgery is designed to relieve the right ventricular outflow tract stenosis by careful resection of muscle and to repair the VSD with a Gore-Tex patch or a homograft.
Children with tetralogy of Fallot may develop “tet spells”. Open heart surgery . Not to be confused with Teratology.

Retrieved 7 May The first total repair of tetralogy of Fallot was done by a team led by C. This page was last edited on 29 Octoberat Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 2 Gene s 11 Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s 6.
Primarily, the degree of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction varies between tetralovia and generally determines clinical symptoms and disease progression. Diagram of a healthy heart and one with tetralogy of Fallot. Mortality rate depends on the severity of the tetralogy of Fallot. The primary symptom is low blood oxygen saturation with or without cyanosis from birth or developing in the first year of life.
Below are the four heart malformations that present together in tetralogy of Fallot:.
Patients who have undergone total surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot have improved hemodynamics and often have good to excellent cardiac function after the operation with some to tetralpgia exercise intolerance New York Heart Association Class I-II. Tex Heart Inst J. Its cause is thought to be due to environmental or genetic factors or a combination. Before more sophisticated techniques became available, chest x-ray was the definitive method of diagnosis.
