TETRALOGY OF FALLOT
Tetralogy of Fallot is a rare condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth. These defects, which affect the structure of heart, cause oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. Some of the common signs of Tetralogy of Fallot include shortness of breath, loss of consciousness, poor weight gain, heart murmur, irritability and prolonged crying, among others.
HOW IS TETRALOGY OF FALLOT DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis is done right after birth by checking the baby's skin colour and doing an X-ray, Electrocardiogram and Echocardiography.
HOW IS TETRALOGY OF FALLOT TREATED?
Tetralogy of Fallot can be treated by surgery soon after the baby is born. During surgery, doctors widen or replace the pulmonary valve and enlarge the passage to the pulmonary artery. They also will place a patch over the ventricular septal defect to close the hole between the two lower chambers of the heart. These actions will improve blood flow to the lungs and the rest of the body.
