Background Although corrective surgery for tetralogy of Fallot has been available for more than 30 years, the occurrence of late sudden death in patients in whom surgery was apparently successful remains worrisome. Methods We studied long-term survival among 163 patients who survived 30 days after complete repair of tetralogy of Fallot, examining follow-up hospital records and death certificates when relevant. Results The overall 32-year actuarial survival rate among all patients who survived su...

Abstract Background. Atrial septal defects have been surgically correctable for more than 30 years. The long-term survival rates among patients treated in the early era of cardiac surgery are poorly documented, but such data are of critical importance to the future medical care, employability, and insurability of these patients. Methods. To determine the natural history of surgically corrected atrial septal defects, we studied all 123 patients who underwent repair of an isolated defect (ostium s...

• The potential number of individuals who might benefit from a cardiac replacement procedure (either cardiac transplantation or insertion of a total artificial heart) was retrospectively estimated from medical records for residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, who had died during a 5-year period. Residents were divided into two age groups: those younger than 15 years (pediatric) and those 15 to 69 years (adult). During the 5-year period of observation, cardiac disease led to death in 17 of the ...

The outlook for patients with double-outlet right ventricle has improved since the development of corrective operations. Late arrhythmic deaths after successful procedures have been reported; however, the magnitude remains unknown. This study was undertaken to identify the magnitude of late sudden death and the significant factors associated with it. From 1965 through 1985, 118 patients underwent corrective operation for double-outlet right ventricle; of these, 23 died in the hospital and six we...
