Abstract

Tetralogy of Fallot with unilateral pulmonary anomalies such as the unilateral absence of pulmonary artery or unilateral pulmonary agenesis is an extremely rare complex congenital heart anomaly. There is no established surgical algorithm for tetralogy of Fallot with concomitant unilateral pulmonary anomalies. This condition is still challenging, especially in the surgical field. In this review we also present our experiences in our center, Dr Cipto Mangunkusumo General Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia. This literature review aimed to discuss systematic treatment options and hoped to help the decision-making process when surgeons face these rare anomalies.
