Abstract

A detailed technique is described for use of a modified Fontan procedure applicable to transposed as well as nontransposed anatomy. In the modified procedure, the use of circumferential grafting is eliminated, as are the complications arising from an anterior conduit in front of the aorta. Clinical results are reported for 9 young adults undergoing this operation.
