Links for ToF, Glenn, and Fontan Patients

There are some very important links for you to read tonight, important enough that I held them back yesterday so I could feature them as a group. If you’ve had a surgical repair, these links could come in handy for you.

The good news is that they are readable online, printable, and you can download them as a PDF file. (The PDF file may not be complete, that’s explained on the download page. But you can print the entire article.) The bad news is that they appear in medical journals and are written for cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, so they are 100% “Doctor Talk.” Bring an interpreter.

But they are important and useful, especially the second and fourth link.

A classic case of Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF).
