|Abstract:||Traditionally, the management of infants with Fallot’s tetralogy (TOF) with excessively reduced pulmonary flow and cyanosis has been palliation until or unless complete repair is feasible. Palliation involves a procedure that augments pulmonary flow. Most series recognise two subgroups of patients at high risk even in the current era: the cyanotic neonate/infant with small pulmonary arteries and those with complex anatomical variants of tetralogy and/or significant comorbidities such as additional congenital heart lesions (e.g associated Atrio Ventricular Septal Defect) or other congenital anomalies. There is an argument for palliation of these high-risk groups to allow for future potentially more effective elective repair|
