Advances in medical and surgical management of congenital heart disease in the last three decades have resulted in a great many survivors to adulthood. Proper care requires intimate knowledge of the basic malformations and their surgical anatomy and results. Tetralogy of Fallot, the most common cyanotic malformation in adults, represents a spectrum from mild right ventricular outflow tract obstruction to complete pulmonary atresia. Evaluation of surgical residua and sequelae includes imaging of aortic-to-pulmonary arterial palliative shunts, detection of residual ventricular septal defect patch leaks or right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, definition of extracardiac conduit patency, and quantitation of ventricular function and valvular regurgitation. Refined echocardiographic imaging and hemodynamic definition is a mainstay in precise segmental anatomical and hemodynamic assessment. Transesophageal echocardiography is particularly important for intraoperative evaluation of surgical results.
