Tetralogy of Fallot Repair: Surgical Approach to RVOTO
Pediatric Heart Institute, Hospital Universitario “12 de Octubre” ◇ Madrid, Spain
Repair of Tetralogy of Fallot is a challenging operation because of the high variability in the morphology of the right ventricular outflow tract and pulmonary valve (RVOT-PV) and the surgical technique that it entails. This review was prepared for pediatric cardiac surgeons with the objective of describing our approach on the correct assessment and operative technique for the repair of Tetralogy of Fallot based on a given RVOT-PV anatomy. A novel morphologic classification based on the RVOT-PV complex was provided.
Key words: tetralogy of fallot; pediatric cardiac surgery; surgical training; morphologic classification; operative tool
