Current Practices in the Timing of Stage 2 Palliation

Academic Article

Abstract

  • BACKGROUND: Mortality through single-ventricle palliation remains high and the effect of the timing of stage 2 palliation (S2P) is not well understood. We investigated current practice patterns in the timing of S2P across two professional societies and compared them to actual practice patterns from two databases of patients who underwent S2P.
