Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two successful cases of eliminated atrial flutter and improved clinical status for Fontan patients are presented. An operation combining introduction of an extracardiac conduit for the Fontan connection, to direct all systemic venous blood away from the atrium, and atrial pathway division and cryoablation, is a useful surgical option for failing Fontan patients.
