Topic: Pathophysiology and Mechanisms

Session: Congenital heart disease


Fontan patients with fenestration acquire low central-venous pressure but hold poor cardiac performances.

Event: ESC Congress 2017

Topic: Paediatric cardiology, other

Session: Imaging arrhythmias in congenital heart disease


Increased central venous pressure is provoked not by pulmonary-circulation defects but by mild cardiac-strains in patients after Fontan procedure.

Event: ESC Congress 2017

Topic: Pulmonary circulation, other

Session: Understanding the pulmonary circulation


Diastolic dysfunction in Fontan patients is provoked by pulmonary high flow before procedure and minor afterload-increment.

Event: ESC Congress 2017

Session: Chronic heart failure (CHF)


Regurgitation of atrio-ventricular valve should be repaired by Glenn procedure in Fontan candidate patients
