BACKGROUND The bidirectional Glenn cavopulmonary anastomosis (BDG) represents the standard interim procedure in treatment of patients with single-ventricle physiology. Anterograde pulmonary blood flow (APBF) maintained after BDG has been shown both to improve and to complicate postoperative clinical course. We studied its effects on outcome after BDG and eventual Fontan completion. METHODS From November 1995 to November 2005, 60 patients underwent BDG and Fontan. All patients had APBF from… CONTINUE READING
