Using the Ozaki technique, a valved conduit was prepared using a dacron graft and bovine pericardium, which was used to create RV-PA continuity during total repair of tetralogy of Fallot with type II pulmonary atresia.
July 3, 2019
Bauser-Heaton and colleagues evaluated outcomes for patients with complex tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs), focusing on those patients who underwent unifocalization with placement of a shut rather than simultaneous intracardiac repair.
Novel Approach to Repair of Tetralogy of Fallot With Absent Pulmonary Valve Syndrome and Severe Airway Compression
June 5, 2019
The authors present a new approach to relieving severe airway compression in tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve and massively dilated pulmonary arteries.

September 18, 2018
This study compares the early outcomes and hospital charges associated with early primary repair vs systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt for neonates and young infants.
Optimal Use of Z-Scores to Preserve the Pulmonary Valve Annulus During Repair of Tetralogy of Fallot
May 11, 2018
Awori and colleagues reviewed 19 published studies on repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), representing 2,500 patients of which 54.8% had a transannular patch (TAP) inserted to relieve right ventricular outflow tract obstruction.

Jimmy Kimmel's son was born with Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia. He had emergency surgery at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in the first week of his life, and this video describes the operation and he goes on to thank all the medical staff who helped in the baby's care.

Outcomes of surgery for congenital heart defects in children with trisomy 13 or 18 were evaluated in 98 pts the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium 1982-2008. Hospital mortality was 28% and 13%, respectively. Median survival was 15 years and 16 years, primarily related to cardiac and respiratory causes.
