    Objective: In 1990, Fontan, Kirklin, and colleagues published equations for survival after the so-called ''Perfect Fontan'' operation. After 1988, we evolved a protocol using an internal or external polytetraflouroethylene tube of 16 to 19 millimetres diameter placed from the inferior caval vein...

    The Fontan operation for single ventricle palliation consists of the creation of a complete cavopulmonary connection, usually by incorporating inferior vena caval flow into a pulmonary arterial circulation already receiving flow from the superior vena cava. In single ventricle palliated in this...

    Intraatrial-conduit Fontan is considered a modification of both extracardiac and lateral-tunnel Fontan. In this study, the patient-specific hemodynamic performance of intraatrial-conduit and lateral-tunnel Fontan with fenestration, considered as conversion templates, was investigated based on...
