Blue episodes.: Tetralogy of fallot is a complex congenital cardiac anomaly (5-10% of cardiac anomalies) that can lead to hypoxia (blue infant) and requires corrective cardiac surgery for long-term survival. 45% of fetal cases have chromosome abnormalities (and then the prognosis is very poor). Otherwise, 94% survival with repair is anticipated (with normal chromosomes), >32% reoperation rate.
