OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the diagnostic accuracy and impact of the systematic use of coronary echocardiography in a large group of preoperative patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). BACKGROUND Accurate preoperative identification of an anomalous coronary artery crossing the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) in patients with TOF is important to prevent coronary injury during surgical repair. METHODS A retrospective review identified 598 patients with TOF between 1983… CONTINUE READING
