Özet

Fontan repair could be used as the definitive palliation in many forms of complex cyanotic congenital heart disease. But thrombosis can occur after a modified Fontan operation (right atrium-right ventricular connection with a conduit). Appropriate management of this complication includes thrombolytic therapy, thrombectomy and revision (if surgically remediable causes of the thrombosis are identified) or redo operation.
