Abstract

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is one of the common cyanotic heart diseases. Now total repair is increasingly being used to save children at younger age and having lower body weight. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of the two different surgical techniques used for total repair of TOF: transatrial-transpulmonary approach and transventricular approach with special emphasis on pre- and intraoperative risk factors that affect the prognosis of patients, and with analysis of postoperative short-term results.
