PMID:  9832117     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This study is a retrospective review using transthoracic echocardiography to assess the success of fenestration closure as well as residual right to left shunts in 35 patients who underwent Fontan fenestration closure in the catheterization laboratory. There is a high rate of closure of the Fontan fenestration; however, other residual right to left shunts are common.
