Tetralogy of Fallot Treatment in  Hyderabad

overview

symptom

The tetralogy of Fallot’s symptoms varies depending on the degree of obstruction to blood flow from the right ventricle to the lungs. Signs and symptoms can include:

The reasons

Fallot tetralogy occurs during fetal growth, when the baby’s heart is developing. Although factors such as poor maternal nutrition, viral diseases, or genetic disorders can increase the risk of this condition, in most cases the cause of the Fallot tetralogy is unknown.

The four anomalies that make up the Fallot tetralogy include:

Pulmonary valve stenosis. Pulmonary valve stenosis is a narrowing of the pulmonary valve – the valve that separates the lower right chamber of the heart (right ventricle) from the main blood vessel that leads to the lungs (pulmonary artery).

The narrowing (narrowing) of the pulmonary valve reduces the flow of blood to the lungs. The narrowing can also affect the muscle below the pulmonary valve. In some severe cases, the pulmonary valve does not form properly (pulmonary atresia) and leads to decreased blood flow to the lungs.

Ventricular septal defect. A ventricular septal defect is a hole (defect) in the wall (septum) that separates the two lower chambers of the heart – the left and right ventricles. The hole allows oxygen-free blood in the right ventricle – the blood that circulates through the body and returns to the lungs to replenish its oxygen supply – to flow into the left ventricle and mix with fresh oxygenated blood from the lungs.
