An in vitro analysis of the PediMag and CentriMag for right-sided failing Fontan supportRight-sided mechanical circulatory support for failing Fontan physiology has been largely unsuccessful due to inherent hemodynamic differences between these patients and the target populations for most assist devices. This study uses advanced benchtop modeling of Fontan physiology to examine the use of PediMag and CentriMag to improve failing Fontan hemodynamics.
Impact of hemodynamics and fluid energetics on liver fibrosis after Fontan operationThe staged Fontan procedure has shown promising short-term outcomes in patients with single ventricles. However, Fontan-associated liver disease is a marked problem as patients age. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between hemodynamics and liver fibrosis in patients undergoing the Fontan.
