Surgical improvement of hepatic venous mixing to resolve systemic arterial hypoxemia associated with post-Fontan pulmonary arteriovenous fistulae.

Abstract

Pulmonary arteriovenous fistulae are known to develop in patients who have functional single-ventricle heart disease and interruption of the inferior vena cava with direct hepatic drainage to the heart, in which a bidirectional Glenn shunt is the only source of pulmonary blood flow.
