Abstract

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a cyanotic congenital heart defect typically diagnosed in infancy and treated with early surgical correction. We report a patient with TOF diagnosed at age 78. Successful surgical repair was performed at age 83, the oldest reported age of surgical correction of this condition. Despite a complicated surgical and postoperative course, the patient is doing well almost four years later.
