OBJECTIVE Poor growth has been described in infants with a single ventricle; however, little is known regarding its effect on surgical outcomes. We sought to assess the effect of nutritional status at the time of the bidirectional Glenn procedure on short-term outcomes. METHODS We performed a retrospective case series of children who underwent the bidirectional Glenn procedure at our institution between January 2001 and December 2007. Anthropometric measurements were recorded at the time of… CONTINUE READING
