The benefits of surgical repair on long term growth in children with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) have been variable. Surgery undertaken beyond infancy has often been associated with a residual degree of growth impairment. Primary repair of during early infancy was adopted in many centres, if clinically indicated. We examined the effects of full early surgical correction of TOF on linear growth for 2 years postoperatively. Anthropometric data of infants with TOF before and after ...

The arterial switch operation (ASO) represents a remarkable success in the treatment of cyanotic congenital heart disease, with survival rates approaching 100%. The effect of infantile deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and hypoxia on post-operative linear growth is not studied. Growth data were recorded and analyzed in 12 infants with d-TGA who underwent switch operation (anatomical correction) in the early neonatal period for 18 months.Results...
