Adults with Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) may require surgery for a number of different reasons, the most frequent of which are (1) correction of severe pulmonary regurgitation (with or without reconstruction surgery of the dilated right ventricle (RV), (2) correction of residual defects (i.e., ventricular septal defects [VSD] or residual right ventricular outflow tract [RVOT] obstruction), and (3) complete correction of ToF in natural history or after palliation (rare in developed countries, but still common in developing countries).
