Learn about Fallot's quadriplegic heart disease

The article was consulted professionally by doctors of Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery – Cardiovascular Center – Share99 Central Park International Health Hub.

Quadriplegic Fallot is the most common purple congenital heart disease, accounting for about 10% of congenital heart diseases. This heart disease causes changes in the structure of the heart.

1. Congenital heart disease

Congenital heart disease in children (or congenital heart defects) are heart deformities that occur from an early age in the fetus. Due to the defective structure of the heart that causes the functioning and functioning of the heart to be affected, blood circulation in the body is abnormally active.

Congenital heart disease in children is the most common form of birth defect and the leading cause of death of birth defects. Currently, thanks to the ultrasound technique,congenital heart defects can be detected at the 18th week of pregnancy.

2. What are Fallot quadriplegics?

Quadriplegic Fallot is a congenital heart disease common in our country as well as around the world. The incidence is 10% of all congenital heart diseases. It is also one of the most common congenital heart diseases, accounting for 75% of purple heart diseases in children over 2 years of age.

The disease usually manifests it purple early in the first months of birth with progressive progress with age, which greatly affects the physical, mental and active development of the child. Without early surgical intervention, children with quadriplegic Fallot usually die before adulthood due to many serious complications caused by severe gas shortages. The child may die from acute hypoxia attacks or from septic endoratitis, due to cerebral thrombosis, brain anemics.

Because of the severe nature of the disease, quadriplegic Fallot needs to be diagnosed as soon as possible, assessing the severeness of the disease based on clinical, cardiac ultrasound and cardiac fluid, thereby solving the problem of timely surgical intervention, helping the child to have a normal life.

3. Symptoms of Quadriplegic Heart Disease Fallot

Quadriplegic Fallot consists of 4 lesions

  • Narrowing of the right line to the right isoted: The connection between the right and the lungs is narrowed, which causes the blood flowing to the lungs to decrease. The main narrow area is just below the pulmonary artery valve that thickens this muscle area. Pulmonary artery valves may also be narrowed.
  • Intervents: There are holes between the right and left atast of the heart.
  • The aortic deviates to the right and "rides" right on the a mediastular opening: The aortic is often much right deviation and is usually located right on the mediastrian opening.
  • Right erthenary hypertrosmbolist: The right erthal muscle is thicker than usual due to obstruction of the way out.

Recognition of children with Quadriplegic Heart Disease Fallot

  • Violet skin, mucous membranes are the main signs. The duration of appearance is not certain, be it immediately after birth (if narrowed) or later (after 4-6 months). Purple increases with exertion (crying, sucking…). The degree of purple more or less often depends on the degree of pulmonary artery stenosis.
  • Difficulty breathing, fatigue when exertion.
  • Signs of squatting when the child is a toddler: the child suddenly sits down, buttocks, bows his head, hands hug the pillow when exertion.
  • Fainting due to lack of brain oxygen.
  • Thirst due to increased blood consalysis.
  • Nails, fingers and feet drum, appear after 2-3 years.
  • There are many red marks in the eye contact membrane.
  • Physical and mental retretness.
  • Non-violet: Sysysotosis due to sysy commions and funnel stenosis, which can be heard along the left bank of the sternum and non-violet patients (clinical signs of non-violet Fallot 4 quadriplegics resemble small hole intersecting).

Share99 Central Park International Health Hub has routinely performed patients from children weighing to adults with congenital heart disease quadriplegic Fallot and achieved very positive results with a success rate of up to 95%, a high rate of preservation of pulmonary artery valves. (If pulmonary artery valves cannot be preserved during the surgery to completely repair the Quadriplegic Fallot, most patients have to go to the hospital several times in their life to replace the biological pulmonary artery valve every 8-10 years).

The surgeries are performed by a team of highly specialized doctors, many years of experience in the field of cardiovascular surgery. Along with that is the support from the modern equipment system invested by the hospital for surgeries: Maquet's HR20 artificial cardiocular system, Avance CS2 anesthesia machine, GE R860 ventilator, the world's most modern Hybrid IGS730 operating room.

The advantages of fallot congenital heart surgery are:

  • After repair in the heart, the oxygen level in the blood increases and the pediatric patient will reduce symptoms.
  • Helps restore cardiovascular functions, prolong life for patients
