Computational Fluid Dynamics in the Design and Evaluation of Surgical Reconstruction for Single Ventricle

Investigators: Edward L. Bove, MD, Surgery; Francesco Migliavacca, PhD, and Gabriele Dubini, PhD, Department of Bioengineering, the Politechnico di Milano (Italy), Surgery

Funding: Internal (Surgery)

A computerized model which evaluates flow dynamics and optimal reconstructive techniques is being used to assess the hemi-Fontan and Fontan operations being utilized for reconstruction of the single ventricle.

Investigational Use of the Contregra Pulmonary Conduit Study 9202-99C

Investigators: Edward L. Bove, MD, Richard G. Ohye, MD, Surgery; and Caren Goldberg, MD, Pediatric Cardiology

Funding: VenPro Corporation / Medtronic, Inc

The optimal conduit for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in congenital heart disease has not yet been identified. A new conduit, harvested from bovine jugular vein, is being evaluated to assess its utility in patients requiring right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduit insertion.
