I focused on the analysis of the Tetralogy of Fallot disease. A binomial regression indicated several factors significant for the mortality.
- Weight under 5kg
- AVC (AVSD)
- Absent pulmonary valve
- RVOT procedure
- Preoperative acidosis
Those ones are pretty obvious and understandable. However, there are three additional statistically significant factors…
- Other preoperative risk factor
- Other preoperative non-cardiac abnormality
- Other chromosomal abnormality
…which aren't quite obvious, are they?
