Fontan Procedure in Hungary

Fontan procedure is a third procedure of the three operations (following the Norwood procedure and Glenn shunt) carried out in children for the treatment of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. It is a congenital (present by birth) abnormality in children, where children possess only a single functional ventricle. As a result, the affected children turn blue due mixing of their arterial (red) blood and venous (blue) blood together. Fontan procedure is a surgical technique carried out to separate the oxygen-rich (arterial) blood and the oxygen-poor (venous) blood. Thus, this procedure helps to separate the two circulations and decrease the workload on the heart, but only one ventricle functions as a ‘pump' (where it drives blood through the body circulation and then into the lung circulation before it returns to the ventricle to start again).
