Surgical palliation or repair of symptomatic Tetralogy of Fallot in the neonatal period is associated with a relatively high mortality rate. Stenting of the right ventricular outflow tract is a newer procedure that has evolved to allow its performance in low birth weight neonates. In this case series, we describe the evolution of our approach to right ventricular outflow tract stent implantation in neonates weighing < 2 kg.
