BACKGROUND Historically, the options for mechanical circulatory support in infants, particularly those with single-ventricle physiology, have been limited and outcomes have generally been poor. We report a new approach implemented for long-term support in a series of such patients. METHODS This study is a single-center case series of 7 patients with single-ventricle physiology after stage 1 palliation supported with mechanical circulatory support using a novel technique, between May 2014 and… CONTINUE READING
