Repairing the Heart: Unifocalization

stanford heart 500In this interactive 3-D animation, Stanford Children’s Health surgeons compare a healthy heart to one with a complex congenital condition called tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia. They also guide you through their repair technique, called unifocalization, which involves rebuilding the blood vessel connection between the heart and lungs, usually in just one surgery.

The video will take you through 3 steps:
1. Circulatory System: how the heart and lungs work
2. Impaired Heart: tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia
3. Surgical Repair: rebuilding a normal circulatory pathway
