"Baby Brendan was brought to us in a condition which was complicated and need surgical intervention to correct the anomaly. In this syndrome the pure and impure blood gets mixed in the heart and the amount of blood flow to the lungs is decreased. It is the most common complex heart defect, representing 55-70%, and the most common cause of blue baby syndrome.

This made the case all the more complicated.

"Babies with Tetrology of Fallout have two treatment options - the first is palliative where no open heart surgery is done and the defect is treated with shunt operation. The second is complete repair - which is definitive treatment where the patient undergoes an open heart surgery with a heart lung machine. In the case of
