Late conduit occlusion after modified Fontan procedure with classic Glenn shunt.
A number of patients with complex congenital heart disease who were initially palliated with a classic Glenn shunt subsequently underwent modified Fontan procedures. This report discusses the operative management of complete occlusion of right atrial-to-right ventricular conduits in patients with patent classic Glenn shunts. The literature is reviewed regarding similar patients, and alternative treatment strategies are discussed.
