Fontan Procedure Survivor


A Fontan procedure survivor is an individual who has undergone the Fontan procedure, a surgical intervention designed to improve blood flow in patients with congenital heart defects that result in a single functional ventricle. The procedure involves redirecting venous blood directly to the pulmonary arteries, bypassing the heart, and allowing oxygen-poor blood to flow directly to the lungs for oxygenation.
