ABOUT THIS BOOK
- Complete review of the major challenges of tetralogy of Fallot
- Key references provided at the end of each chapter
- Indications for clinical daily practice
Tetralogy of Fallot is the most common form of cyanotic congenital heart disease, and one of the first to be successfully repaired by congenital heart surgeons. Although “fixed”, Patients born with tetralogy of Fallot are not "cured". Improving survival and quality of life for this ever-increasing adult population will continue to challenge the current and future generations of cardiologists. Adult patients with tetralogy of Fallot should be seen by a cardiologist specializing in the care of adults with congenital heart disease, to be monitored for late complications. They need to be checked regularly for any subsequent complications or disturbances of heart rhythm. The most common late complication is a right ventricular failure, which may require subsequent surgery. This monograph is intended as both an introduction to the subject and a timely, comprehensive review – more extensive than a review article and more up to date than a textbook.
