Abstract

A 3-year-old male with a diagnosis of tetralogy of Fallot and a right Blalock–Taussig shunt (created at 1 month of age) presents with a history of gradually decreasing exercise tolerance and increasing frequency of hypercyanotic episodes. He had a hematocrit of 69% 2 months previously. He is scheduled for complete repair of his lesion.
