  • Their study began as an ambitious randomized trial comparing a regimen of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) with post-operative heparin followed by oral warfarin therapy to prevent thromboembolism in children undergoing the Fontan procedure. (onlinejacc.org)
  • In addition to perspective randomization of patients to ASA or heparin/warfarin, the study's primary endpoint was innovative because it included both thrombus that led to clinical events and the presence of asymptomatic or silent thromboemboli that were detected by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), a relatively invasive procedure not usually in done in the routine clinical management of Fontan patients.

  • Jatene
  • This surgery had not been possible prior to 1975 because of difficulty with re-implanting coronary arteries which perfuse the actual heart muscle itself (myocardium), and even after it was first performed the excellent results from the Mustard operation meant that it was a long time before the Jatene procedure took over.
