Pediheart Podcast #155: Comparison Of Warfarin vs. Aspirin In The Fontan Patient

This week we review the important topic of anticoagulation of the Fontan patient. We speak with hematology researcher, Dr. Chantal Attard of The Murdoch Children's Research Institute of The University of Melbourne about a recent cross-sectional study comparing multiple factors in patients with Fontan circulation on aspirin vs. warfarin. What were the demonstrable differences in outcome? Are there ways to make the use of warfarin more safe? What about novel anticoagulants - what is their possible role and what evidence exists for their use in this setting? Dr. Attard provides many key 'takeaways' this week! doi: 10.1016/j.jtcvs.2020.12.102
