Pediheart Podcast #142: Impact Of Diaphragm Plication On Single Ventricle Outcomes
Surgery is on tap this week as we discuss a recent paper from the team at Children's Hospital LA about diaphragm plication in the single ventricle patient. What impact did this intervention have on outcomes? How were hemodynamics impacted and did this change outcomes of the bidirectional Glenn or Fontan? What percentage of patients recovered diaphragm function? Professor S. Ram Kumar of USC shares his insights into his recent work with his team.
