Material and Methods: In this retrospective cohort study, the clinical records of 100 children who underwent surgery in Shahid Madani Hospital (Tabriz University of Medical Sciences) during 2010 to 2021 and were admitted to the intensive care unit were evaluated for surgical results.
Results: Most deaths in the first ten years were due to complete correction of follow-up tetralogy, followed by repair and replacement of mitral valve, and in the second ten years, most deaths were due to systemic pulmonary shunting, followed by complete correction of follow-up tetralogy. Overall mortality in the second ten years is about 2% lower than in the first ten years.
