This might explain the higher frequency of TOF and other cyanotic heart defects like Transposition of great arteries and single ventricle.
She suffered from situs solitus, a severe cyanotic heart defect consisting of pulmonary atresia, overriding aorta, concordant atrioventricular shunts, aortopulmonary collateral circulation, and a large ventricular septal defect (VSD).
We found that TOF was the commonest cyanotic lesion as also shown by Rehan.18 and Faud.19 Farooqui4 had reported that TGA was the most common cyanotic heart defect. The only explanation for this may be that our study duration was three years compared to 11 months of Farooqui.4 In our study only a few of the cases compared to 18.30% shown by Fatema6 who had other associated congenital lesions.
Our patient has a congenital cyanotic heart defect which is characterised by the rare combination of increased pulmonary blood flow to the left lung, with development of unilateral pulmonary hypertension, and decreased blood flow to the right lung, with under-perfusion of that lung.
With congenital cyanotic heart defects, blood pumped to the body contains less than normal amounts of oxygen.
Cyanotic heart defects were seen in 58 patients (47.1%).
Cyanotic heart defects were seen in 58 patients (47.1%).Ventricular septal defect (VSD) followed by Patent ductus arteriosus and atrial septal defect (ASD), were the commonest acyanotic heart lesions, 33.8%, 23.0% and 16.9% respectively.
In Cyanotic heart defects TOF was the commonest 30 (51.7%), followed by Transposition of Great Arteries (TGA) 10(31.3%), complex heart disease 6(10.3%), five cases each of Atrioventricular canal defect (AV canal defect) and VSD with RVOT obstruction.
