The Blalock–Thomas–Taussig shunt is a surgical procedure performed for increasing pulmonary blood flow for palliation in duct-dependent cyanotic heart defects like pulmonary atresia that is also one of the common causes of the blue baby syndrome. During the procedure, the surgeon attaches the two ends of the shunt to a major blood vessel such as the subclavian artery to the pulmonary artery. The high-pressure arterial system will force blood through the BT shunt to the lungs to pick up more oxygen. The success rate for the treatment remains between 82-94%.
