In brief: Respiratory distress
Absent pulmonary valve syndrome is a rare form of congenital heart disease.
There are some features that are similar to tetralogy of fallot. Absent pulmonary valve syndrome is different than pulmonary valve atresia. Corrective surgery is required. Typically, the dominant feature early is respiratory distress due to compression of the trachea and bronchi by enlarged pulmonary arteries.

In brief: Cyanosis
This is an extreme type of tetralogy of fallot (tof with pulmonary valve atresia).
It results in intense cyanosis and possibly respiratory distress, usually within the first 1-2 days of life when the ductus arteriosus closes. These babies require special medicine after birth (pge1) and surgical intervention directed at providing a reliable source of pulmonary blood flow.

In brief: Serious
This is a serious problem, but generally is correctable with the proper surgery.
What happens is that the heart does not handle your blood properly leading to potential heart and tissue damage from overwork and lack of oxygen.

Absent pulmonary valve syndrome most often leads to wheezing and bronchial obstruction because of enlarged pulmonary vessels.
