Background : A recent modification of the Nor wood procedure involves the use of a right ventricleto-pulmonary artery (RV-PA) shunt to provide pulmonary blood flow for patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). We investigated the hemodynamics after first-stage palliation of HLHS with RV-PA shunt compared with classic Norwood procedure with subclavian-to-pulmonary artery (BT) shunt.
