Pediheart Podcast #138: Hepatic Stiffness In The 2 Ventricle Congenital Heart Patient

This week we delve into the liver once more to review an intriguing report from the group at Johns Hopkins regarding hepatic stiffness in the 2 ventricle congenital heart patient. We know from prior works that single ventricle patients have enhanced liver stiffness but this work suggests that some 2 ventricle patients are also similarly affected. We speak with Professor Ari Cedars of Johns Hopkins University for his insights into these findings and who he thinks might warrant routine liver follow-up in the ACHD patient following congenital heart surgery. doi: 10.1016/j.athoracsur.2020
