Case description

Surgical video case: tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve is a complex congenital heart defect characterized by a combination of four abnormalities: ventricular septal defect, overriding aorta, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and absent pulmonary valve. The absence of the pulmonary valve leads to dilatation of the pulmonary arteries, causing compression of surrounding structures. This condition often results in severe respiratory distress in neonates due to airway compression and bronchial compression. Surgical intervention is typically required to address the underlying issues and alleviate symptoms. Despite the challenges associated with this condition, advancements in pediatric cardiac surgery have improved outcomes, offering hope for affected individuals.
