Abstract

BackgroundSystemic-pulmonary shunts are widely used in initial palliation in cyanotic congenital heart disease. The incidence and the relationship between acute shunt obstruction and thrombophilia are not precisely defined. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of shunt obstruction in the early postoperative period, and to define the frequency and presence of thrombophilia factors in patients treated for acute shunt thrombosis.
