Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common benign tumors of infancy and usually they don't require specific therapy. In 10-20% of cases IHs are able to generate complication and medical/surgical intervention is needed. For many decades standard treatment consisted in oral or intralesional corticosteroids until Leaute-Labreze and colleagues published the first report on the efficacy of propranolol for cutaneous infantile hemangiomas in 2008. IHs can be sometimes part of complex syndrome. Here we report the case of a patient with tetralogy of Fallot operated at 5 month of age who stopped propranolol treatment for hypoxic spells and unusually developed facial and subglottic IHs configuring the diagnosis of PHACES syndrome (posterior fossa brain malformations, hemangioma, arterial anomalies, cardiac defects and/or aortic coarctation, ocular anomalies and sternal defects)...

Junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) is a major cause of postoperative morbidity after complete repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). Propranolol is a known medication used in patients with TOF to prevent and control hypercyanotic spells. Despite this, there is little information regarding the relation between preoperative use of propranolol and the incidence of postoperative JET. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of preoperative use of propranolol on the incidence of postoperative JET after full surgical repair of TOF...

Balloon valvoplasty was undertaken in 27 patients with tetralogy of Fallot for first-stage palliation. Indications were arterial saturation of oxygen < 80%, hypoxic spells and duct-dependant pulmonary perfusion. The dilation was performed following diagnostic heart catheterization. Saturations improved from 75% +/- 8.5 before valvoplasty to 85% +/- 8.4 after the procedure, and worsened little to 83% +/- 9.6 at follow-up after 3.4 months. The pulmonary valvar orifice was hypoplastic in most patients (Z = -3...

We experienced 5 cases of intraoperative anoxic spell in 48 patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). One of 5 cases had tetralogy with pulmonary atresia (Type A), and the others had tetralogy alone (Type D). The patient of type A who had anoxic spells during preoperative period had been on chronic propranolol therapy. However, the patients of type D had no anoxic spells during preoperative period and one in this type had not been on beta-adrenergic blocking drugs preoperatively. One patient was anesthetized with fentanyl-diazepam-O2, and the others were anesthetized with morphine-diazepam-O2...
