A Simple Predictive Factor for Mortality in Fontan Surgery: Serum Hypo-Osmolality

Abstract Objective: Close follow-up is important after the Fontan procedure, which is a palliative surgical method for a single ventricle. In this period, serum osmolality is an important parameter with the advantages of easy to obtain and poor outcome prediction. Methods: Patients who had undergone Fontan operation between May 2011 and February 2017 were retrospectively evaluated.
