Restrictive atrial septum after the Fontan procedure


Penford, Gemma; Quandt, Daniel; Stumper, Oliver (2016). Restrictive atrial septum after the Fontan procedure. Cardiology in the Young, 26(03):574-578.

Abstract

In this study, three patients presenting with early or late postoperative Fontan complications were identified to suffer from restriction of the native atrial septum. This caused significant obstruction to pulmonary venous return and elevated systemic venous pressure. Dobutamine stress testing was used in one patient to identify this lesion. Transcatheter stenting was performed in the other two patients. Patients improved after relief of the obstruction.
