Glenn shunt facilitated weaning of right ventricular mechanical support.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Management of biventricular mechanical circulatory support patients can be complex and can require different systems for support of the right and left ventricles. We describe the use of a Glenn shunt to facilitate weaning from a right ventricular assist device in a patient with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy on biventricular mechanical circulatory support.
