Drs. Jeffrey Jacobs and Duke Cameron invite you to an informal dinner conversation on the Birth of Paediatric Heart Surgery. Drs. Jacobs and Cameron will interview a panel of global experts on the evolution of the treatment of tetralogy of Fallot and the historical importance of this lesion in the development of paediatric cardiac surgery. Through interactive dialogue, we will explore the development of the Blalock Taussig Shunt by Alfred Blalock, Helen Taussig, and Vivien Thomas at Johns Hopkins in 1944, revolutionizing the treatment of pediatric heart disease. We will review the history, anatomy, incidence, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of tetralogy of Fallot and look ahead to the future.
