Heart Surgery: Tof is a complex type of congenital heart disease characterized by a large hole in the heart (vsd) and obstruction of pulmonary blood flow (pulmonary stenosis). Babies with tof require heart surgery during infancy. The surgery involves closing the hole and establishing unobstructed pulmonary blood flow. Survival rates are very good.
