- Multiscale Modeling of Superior Cavopulmonary Circulation: Hemi-Fontan and Bidirectional Glenn Are EquivalentSeminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular SurgeryVol. 32Issue 4
- PreviewSuperior cavopulmonary circulation (SCPC) can be achieved by either the Hemi-Fontan (hF) or Bidirectional Glenn (bG) connection. Debate remains as to which results in best hemodynamic results. Adopting patient-specific multiscale computational modeling, we examined both the local dynamics and global physiology to determine if surgical choice can lead to different hemodynamic outcomes. Six patients (age: 3–6 months) underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and catheterization prior to SCPC surgery.
