Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Three cases of pseudoaneurysm of subclavian artery in long-term follow-up after staged repair of tetralogy of Fallot are described. The angiographical study revealed that aneurysms were located in the systemic end area of previously ligated modified Blalock-Taussing shunt. Aneurysmectomy with resection of a shunt and segment of subclavian artery was performed. We believe division of a prosthetic shunt should be routinely performed during complete repair of tetralogy to prevent morbidity in the long-term follow-up period.
