Tetralogy of Fallot is a combination of several defects, affecting about 3 in every 10,000 babies. The defects making up tetralogy of Fallot are:ventricular septal defect  a hole between the left and right ventricle. Pulmonary stenosis narrowing of the pulmonary valve. Right ventricular hypertrophy  where the muscle of the right ventricle is thickened. Displaced aorta  where the aorta isn't in its usual position coming out of the heart

As a result of this combination of defects, oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood mixes, causing the overall amount of oxygen in the blood to be lower than normal.
