The physiological consequences of the Fontan circulation impose risk for hepatic dysfunction and may culminate in hepatic fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Consensus regarding appropriate surveillance modalities to diagnose liver disease in Fontan patients is lacking, in part due to the relative lack of strong evidence and prospective studies in this patient population. The goal of this paper is to critically review the current evidence and provide recommendations for the surveillance of hepatic complications in the post-Fontan patient population...

Elevated right atrial (RA) pressure and progressive RA dilation are thought to play pivotal roles in the development of late complications after atriopulmonary connection (APC) Fontan surgery. However, no clear cut-off value for RA pressure or RA volume has been determined for stratifying the risk of developing Fontan complications. We hypothesized that RA tension, which incorporates information about both RA pressure and volume, might help predict the risk of developing complications. We retrospectively studied 51 consecutive APC Fontan patients (median postoperative period 14 years)...

Long-term outcomes of the Fontan operation include Fontan failure and liver disease. Combined heart-liver transplantation (CHLT) is an option for select patients although limited data exist on this strategy. A retrospective review of Fontan patients 18 years or older referred for cardiac transplant evaluation between 2000 and 2013 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania was performed. All patients were considered for potential CHLT. Clinical variables such as demographics, perioperative factors, and short-term outcomes were reviewed...

OBJECTIVES: Liver disease is an important contributor to morbidity and mortality in patients after Fontan surgery. There has been no large-scale survey of liver health in this population. We sought to explore the prevalence and predictors of liver disease in a multicenter cohort of adults with Fontan physiology. METHODS: Subjects were recruited from 6 adult congenital heart centers. Demographics; clinical history; and laboratory, imaging, and histopathology data were obtained...

BACKGROUND: The progression of hepatic disease in adult Fontan patients is not well understood. They reviewed the experience with serial cardiac MRIs (CMR) in adult Fontan patients to determine if hepatic anatomic markers of prolonged Fontan exposure were present and if clinical predictors of progressive hepatic congestion could be identified. METHODS AND RESULTS: A retrospective cohort study of all adult Fontan patients who had undergone at least two CMRs was performed...

BACKGROUND/METHODS: The aging patient with severe congenital heart disease (CHD) faces many challenges: heart failure, arrhythmia, and in the Fontan patient, liver disease. Our goal was to define combined heart liver transplant (CHLT) and isolated orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) outcomes in U.S. adult CHD patients. The U.S. United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) thoracic and liver databases were queried for cardiac and CHD diagnoses, from inception-2014. RESULTS: In CHLT, CHD made up 22% of waitlist patients (non-CHD n=262 vs...

A 29-year-old woman who underwent the Fontan procedure at 10 years of age had an incidental finding of liver masses on abdominal ultrasonography. Subsequent gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid magnetic resonance imaging showed a 15 mm hypervascular mass with washout in the hepatobiliary phase in liver segment 4 (S4), and an 18 mm hypervascular mass without washout in the hepatobiliary phase in liver segment 2 (S2). The S2 liver mass was pathologically diagnosed to be a regenerative nodule by an ultrasound-guided needle biopsy, and the S4 liver mass was pathologically diagnosed as a poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma after partial hepatectomy...

Although long-term survival is now the norm, Fontan patients face significant morbidity and premature mortality. Wide variation exists in long-term Fontan management. With an aim of improving their long-term management, we conducted a systematic review to identify best available evidence and gaps in knowledge for future research focus. We also surveyed cardiologists in Australia and New Zealand managing Fontan patients, to determine the alignment of current local practice with best available evidence. A systematic review was conducted using strict search criteria (PRISMA guidelines), pertaining to long-term Fontan management...

INTRODUCTION: The Fontan procedure (FP) has become the standard operation for patients with single ventricle physiology. However, a long period of elevated systemic venous pressure and low cardiac output after the procedure result in chronic inflammation and liver cirrhosis, which may eventually lead to the occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). CLINICAL FINDINGS: We described the case of a 16-year-old female who developed HCC after the FP. At 21 months, the patient received a lateral tunnel FP, and 14 years later, she began complaining of abdominal distension, telangiectasia, and fatigue...

In this study, we describe the case of a 36-year-old woman who was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma on a background of Fontan procedure for tricuspid atresia. She had worsening heart failure in the months before presentation, and early investigations noted derangement in liver enzymes and hepatomegaly. Liver biopsy confirmed a hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare but recognised consequence of cardiac cirrhosis in Fontan patients.

We report multi-organ histopathological changes in a patient with protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) over 12 years after Fontan operation. A 14-year-old boy with right isomerism heart and single ventricle had undergone Fontan procedure at 19 months of age, and PLE was diagnosed at 28 months. He had several episodes of intestinal bleeding and pre-renal failure with elevated creatine, and eventually died of pneumonia. The intrapulmonary small arteries showed medial and intimal thickening resembling pulmonary hypertension...

"Frontiers in Fontan Failure" was the title of a 2015 conference sponsored by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine. In what is hoped to be the first of many such gatherings, speakers and attendees gathered to discuss the problem of long-term clinical deterioration in these patients. Specific focuses included properly defining the problem and then discussing different treatment strategies, both medical and surgical. The health of the liver after Fontan palliation was a particular point of emphasis, as were quality of life and future directions...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic fibrosis is highly prevalent in individuals with Fontan circulation. FibroSure (LabCorp, Burlington, NC) and hyaluronic acid (HA) have been validated for assessment of hepatic fibrosis in several forms of liver disease. We sought to determine whether these tests could identify Fontan patients with advanced hepatic fibrosis or cirrhosis. METHODS: Subjects who had liver biopsy and FibroSure or HA testing within 6 months of biopsy were identified from the Alliance for Adult Research in Congenital Cardiology Fontan Liver Health study...

The Fontan operation is a widely used palliative procedure in patients with single ventricle anatomy that results in liver injury. As timely identification of liver fibrosis may result in management changes to Fontan patients, the aim of our study was to identify clinically meaningful semi-quantitative/quantitative pathologic parameters for biopsy assessment. We performed a retrospective review of 74 liver needle biopsies from Fontan patients. Fibrosis was assessed using quantitative % collagen deposition (%CD) by Sirius red image analysis, METAVIR, congestive hepatic fibrosis score (CHFS), sinusoidal fibrosis (SF) score, and sinusoidal dilation score...

Fontan surgery is a widely used palliative procedure that significantly improves the survival period of patients with complex congenital heart disease (CHD). However, it does not decrease postoperative complication rate. Previous studies suggested that elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) and vascular resistance lead to decreased exercise tolerance and myocardial dysfunction. Therapy with endothelial receptor antagonists (Bosentan) has been demonstrated to improve the patients' prognosis. A double-blind, randomized controlled trial was performed to explore the efficacy of Bosentan in treating patients who underwent the Fontan procedure...

OBJECTIVES: Adults with failing Fontan circulation (FFC) represent a heterogeneous, high-risk group for cardiac transplantation with poor reported outcomes. We studied the impact of mode of Fontan failure (preserved versus impaired systolic ventricular function) and end-organ dysfunction on early survival in adults undergoing cardiac transplantation for FFC. METHODS: A single-centre, retrospective study of 26 adults (≥16 years) with FFC undergoing cardiac transplantation between 1990 and 2015...
