Case Report

Early IVC thrombosis after central shunt surgery in young adult with uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot

Samira Valiyeva, Madina Yuzbashova, Ermanno Mazza, Rashad Mahmudov.


As there is paucity of data about thrombosis of inferior vena cava (ICV) in adult patients with uncorrected cyanotic heart defects, including those with tetralogy of Fallot, revealing and reporting of such cases is necessary for development of their proper clinical management.
Because cardiac surgery is relatively new in Azerbaijan (being founded in 2004) late uncorrected cyanotic cases with subsequent complications are still an issue in our country.
Here we describe a case of ICV thrombosis after placement of systemic-pulmonary bypass (Davidson’s shunt) in a 26-year-old patient diagnosed with Fallot’s tetralogy. As there were signs of pulmonary embolism in early postoperative period, the patient has undergone vena cava filter placement.

Key words: IVC thrombosis, congenital heart disease in young adult, systemic to pulmonary shunts, tetralogy of Fallot.
