World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Videos

This dinner conversation was recorded at the Sixth World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery in South Africa on Thursday, February 21, 2013. We invite you to view the videos of our conversation about the birth of pediatric heart surgery. Our panel of international experts chronicle the first successful repair of tetralogy of Fallot, a devastating heart malformation once deemed universally fatal. They explore the development of the Blalock-Taussig shunt by Alfred Blalock, Helen Taussig, and Vivien Thomas at Johns Hopkins in 1944, known as the "Blue Baby" operation, which revolutionized the treatment of pediatric heart disease and ushered in a new era of cardiac surgery. They also review the pathology, diagnosis, incidence, treatment and prognosis of tetralogy of Fallot.
