Abstract

The postoperative course and the post-mortem findings of a group of 30 patients who died after repair of tetralogy of Fallot were reviewed. A residual ventricular septal defect was the most common finding at autopsy (13 patients = 43%) while a severe residual obstruction to the right ventricular outflow was found in 5 patients (17%), miscellaneous lesions in 3 (10%) and no intracardiac defects in 9 (30%). Since a residual anatomic defect is frequently responsible for the hospital mortality, prompt hemodynamic evaluation and reoperation is recommended when the postoperative course is deteriorating.
