About one in 125 babies born in the United States suffers such a defect; three to six of every 10,000 have what's known as a defect called Tetralogy of Fallot, a cause of "blue baby syndrome" that requires the surgical placement of a patch across the heart's right ventricular outflow tract.

2,5) It has been shown that the left lateral decubitus position in venous/right ventricular air embolism redistributes the air above the right ventricular outflow tract, relieving air lock and improving survival.
CryoPatch is indicated for the repair or reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), a surgery commonly performed in children with congenital heart defects, such as Tetralogy of Fallot, Truncus Arteriosus, and Pulmonary Atresia.
Introduction Uhl's anomaly, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia / cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) and right ventricular outflow tract ventricular tachycardia (RVOT VT) involve pathogenic changes in the right ventricular (RV) myocardium.
13) Exuberant pannus may be worsened by the longevity of implants, the relatively young age of the patient population, and the narrower right ventricular outflow tract (especially in those with the tetralogy of Fallot) and may be exacerbated by the differences in hemodynamics in the right versus the left side of the heart.
Transoesophageal echocardiography showed a solid mass in the right ventricular outflow tract and the left ventricular volume load was decreased significantly (Figure 1).
However, the use of sertraline raised the risk of cardiac septal defect (13 cases), and the use of paroxetine raised the risk of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (6 cases).
