I'm 23 weeks pregnant and just discovered that the fetus has a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot.

Congenital heart diseases are heart-related abnormalities that appear in the fetus and persist after birth.

Some common types of congenital heart defects include: aortic valve stenosis, aortic arch hypoplasia, bicuspid aortic valve, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, tetralogy of Fallot, conversion

Pregnant mothers have fetal echocardiography to screen for congenital heart disease at Tam Anh Hospital.

Previously, when medicine was not yet developed, children with congenital heart disease were discovered after birth or during adulthood.

Congenital heart defects vary in severity from mild to severe.

Although tetralogy of Fallot is considered a severe congenital heart disease, with outstanding advances in modern medicine, the chance of early detection and treatment is high.

Time of disease detection: Disease detected early in the womb or immediately after birth will help doctors plan appropriate and effective treatment.

Treatment: Surgery is the most effective treatment for tetralogy of Fallot.

How to care: After surgery, follow-up visits and child care play an extremely important role, because this is a disease that requires periodic, lifelong monitoring.

Most children with tetralogy of Fallot who undergo radical surgery can live healthy lives into adulthood with nearly normal heart function.
