In a nutshell: Scientists at the University of Manchester have published a paper showing for the first time, the possible genetic causes of a serious congenital heart condition, Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF).
People born with ToF have four specific structural abnormalities in the heart, which mean they often have to undergo open heart surgery early in life. Many patients will have several surgeries and procedures throughout their lifetime. ToF is a very complex congenital heart condition, and in the majority of cases the cause is unknown.
