          We studied pulmonary artery size, reinterventions, and panel reactive antibodies in patients with single-ventricle physiology who underwent a pulmonary arterioplasty with decellularized (DAPAP) and non-decellularized allogeneic pulmonary artery patches (non-DAPAP). Retrospective review identified 59 patients with single-ventricle physiology who underwent pulmonary arterioplasty from 2008 to 2017: 28 patients underwent arterioplasty with DAPAP and 31 patients with non-DAPAP. Demographic and operative variables were similar between groups.
