1 Chest a b Fig. 15 a, b Surgical correction of the tetralogy of Fallot. a The VSD is repaired with a Dacron or PTFE patch. b The pulmonary arteriotomy is enlarged and closed with a transannular patch after removal of the hypertrophic trabeculae. info 2 Chest Tetralogy of Fallot Tetralogy of Fallot is a common congenital cardiac anomaly, accounting for approximately 10–15% of cases of congenital cardiac anomaly. It has four main pathoanatomic features: a ventricular septal defect (VSD); infundibular or valvular pulmonary stenosis; right ventricular hypertrophy; and dextroposition of the anterior cruciate ligament origin.

Fig. 1 Chest radiograph. The radiography report described normal-appearing heart and lungs, correct position of the endotracheal tube, ECG leads, ventilation hose, and an external metal plate projected over the upper abdomen. info 2 Further Case Summary Laparotomy was repeated the same day and disclosed a retractor left from the previous operation. Error Analysis and Strategy for Error Prevention The radiologist who read the chest radiograph had not considered the possibility of an iatrogenic foreign body due to the patient’s history and the rarity of the finding.

B Fig. 34 a–c MRI confirms the CT findings and raises suspicion of lymph node metastases. a T2-weighted turbo spin-echo sequence. b T1-weighted fat-suppressed STIR sequence after IV contrast administration. c Topographic anatomy (CT). info 1 Cranium The gas inclusion in the thickened subcutaneous tissue was caused by air in a fistulous tract. Lymph node enlargement was a result of lymphadenitis and, as is often the case, was indistinguishable from early metastasis. The images in Fig. 35 a–c, acquired in an 87-year-old woman, raised premature suspicion of carcinoma due to an incomplete history and physical examination.
