Pediheart Podcast #174: Outcomes Of The Potts Shunt In Pulmonary Hypertension Management
This week we enter the world of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and review a large multicenter registry study assessing outcomes of the Potts shunt for the management of severe PH. Who is a good or bad candidate for this therapy? Is there an advantage to placement of a valve in the shunt? Does this form of palliation affect lung transplant eligibility? We speak with the first author of this week's paper, Dr. R. Mark Grady, Professor of Pediatrics at Washington University. doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2021.05.039. For this interested, the organization mentioned this week is ljshealinghearts.com.
