Abstract

Completion of the extracardiac Fontan procedure is the final palliative stage for treating a functional single ventricle. It has been associated with a smaller incidence of atrial arrhythmias and more laminar flow in the Fontan pathway. We present our technique for the off-pump extracardiac Fontan procedure.
