Frontiers in Fontan Failure 2017

By Camden Hebson, MD; Fred Rodriguez III, MD; Michael E. McConnell, MD

In 1992, Doctors Fontan and Kirklin published an article entitled “Outcome of the Perfect Fontan.” The article ended with Dr. Fontan stating that the Fontan physiology “imposed a gradually declining functional capacity and premature late death after an initial period of often excellent palliation.”1 It is from this starting point, that Frontiers in Fontan Failure 2017 will try to improve the outcome for patients who have Fontan palliation.

To read the full article, please go to the September 2017 Issue of CCT, where it was originally published.
