Abstract
To assess the VSD type of TOF and relationship between VSD type of TOF and pulmonary valve stenosis, small pulmonary valve annulus, and pulmonary artery anomaly, we analyzed 256 cases of surgically confirmed TOF patients. The summary of observation is as follows; 1) Four tytes of VSDs were found. The most frequent is perimembranous (PM) VSD of which incidence is 75.7% (159/210), second most frequent case is muscular infundibular (MI) VSD of which incidence is 13.3% (28/210), the third is subarterial (SA) VSD of which incidence is 6.2% (13/210), and the fourth is perimembranous to subarterial (PM-SA) VSD of which incidence is 4.8% (10/210) 2) Twenty three patients (10.9%; 23/ 210) had subarterial ventricular septal defects (SA+PM-SA) of which incidence in our study is significantly higher than that of studies in western countries (5.5%), but no case of aortic insufficiency, which is commonly found in subarterial VSD in isolated VSD, was found in subarterial type of Tetralogy of Fallot. 3) The incidence of pulmonary valve stenosis (100%) is significantly higher in subarterial VSD (SA+PM-SA) (p<0.05) and the incidence of pulmonary artery anomaly (8. 7%) is much lower than that of other two types (22.5% ) but this difference is not stastically significant (0. 05
