Case Summary

DEEPAK is 9 years old suffering from TOF. Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a serious, congenital heart defect, affecting about two in 10,000 babies. In TOF, the abnormal connections prevent enough oxygen-poor (blue) blood from flowing to the lungs as it should. As a result, a person with TOF has a lower-than-normal amount of oxygen in the blood and typically, surgical correction is necessary. Historically, children with TOF were called “blue babies.

In a normal heart, oxygen-poor blood returns to the right atrium from the body and travels to the right ventricle. Then, it is pumped through the pulmonary artery into the lungs, where it receives oxygen. Oxygen-rich (red) blood returns to the left atrium from the lungs, passes into the left ventricle and then is pumped through the aorta out to the body.

Children born with TOF have a combination of four cardiac anatomic characteristics:

1.Ventricular septal defect: There is a hole between the right and left pumping chambers (ventricles) of the heart.

2.Right ventricular outflow tract obstruction: The connection between the right ventricle and lung (pulmonary) artery is narrowed, and blood flow to the lungs is blocked. This is what causes babies to be blue.

3.Overriding aorta: The artery that connects the left ventricle to the body is positioned too far to the right.

4.Right ventricular hypertrophy: The right ventricle is thicker than normal because it’s pumping against a blockage. It’s working too hard.
