Tetralogy of Fallot With Restrictive Ventricular Septal Defect.
Summary of "Tetralogy of Fallot With Restrictive Ventricular Septal Defect."
We present a case of tetralogy of Fallot with progressive restriction of the ventricular septal defect (VSD) by tricuspid valve tissue. The report includes echocardiographic and catheter images of this rare complication of tetralogy of Fallot. Restriction of the VSD in tetralogy of Fallot is associated with increased surgical-related mortality.

It is timely, in the 125th anniversary of the initial description by Fallot of the hearts most frequently seen in patients presenting with "la maladie bleu", that we revisit his descriptions, and disc...
Tetralogy of Fallot is the most common cyanotic heart defect seen in children beyond infancy. There is considerable variation in surgical management today ranging from differences in timing of complet...
This presentation will demonstrate the essential features of tetralogy of Fallot in the infant and child before surgery, as well as some noteworthy features in the foetus. The four features, namely, s...
Impaired right ventricular (RV) mechanics is a common problem in patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). Moreover, also impaired left ventricular (LV) systolic function has been demonstrat...
Adverse ventricular remodeling after tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair is associated with diffuse myocardial fibrosis.

Tetralogy of Fallot is one of the most frequent congenital heart malformations. In many cases re-interventions, surgical or catheter-based, are necessary after the repair of tetralogy of F...
At Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, it is standard of care to do a cardiac MRI on patients with the diagnosis of Tetralogy of Fallot and Aortic Coarctation to evaluate heart f...
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 rig...
Pulmonary valve replacement in the adult population is an uncommon operation. The majority of native valve pathology in adults involves the mitral, aortic, and occasionally tricuspid valv...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
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.
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 combination of congenital heart defects consisting of three key features including ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; and RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY.
A condition characterized by the thickening of the ventricular ENDOCARDIUM and subendocardium (MYOCARDIUM), seen mostly in children and young adults in the TROPICAL CLIMATE. The fibrous tissue extends from the apex toward and often involves the HEART VALVES causing restrictive blood flow into the respective ventricles (CARDIOMYOPATHY, RESTRICTIVE).
