OBJECTIVE Despite a continuous improvement in operative outcome the optimal timing for the repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results following neonatal repair of TOF and the need for reintervention associated with this strategy. METHODS Retrospective review of 66 consecutive patients with TOF and confluent pulmonary arteries, who underwent repair immediately after diagnosis. Group I (n=46) had a median age of 5 days (1-29… CONTINUE READING
