Abstract

RENDON, Iván D et al. Tetralogy of Fallot and pregnancy. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.4, pp.246-250. ISSN 0120-5633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rccar.2014.04.002.

Tetralogy of Fallot is the most frequent cyanotic congenital pathology and requires an early surgical correction. Nowadays, more women reach childbearing age after surgical repair of this pathology, thus tolerating the after-effects of this procedure during adolescence and adulthood. Recent case reports show that a corrected mayor congenital heart disease does not preclude pregnancy. The following case report describes a patient with previous surgical correction of Tetralogy of Fallot and severe pulmonary regurgitation who carried her pregnancy to term without complications.

Keywords : Congenital heart disease in adults; Tetralogy of Fallot; . Pregnancy.
