Prof. Francis Fontan

Today on his birthday, we would like to remember Prof. Francis Fontan. A great heart surgeon and pioneer in the field of single-ventricle heart surgery. Thanks to his "Fontan" procedure, children born with a single-ventricle heart can often lead a nearly normal life into adulthood.


Over time, these patients experience a worsening of their heart and other organ function, a so called failing of their Fontan circulation.

Then, these patients are in desperate need of a donor heart.

To survive the often very long waiting times, we have developed a bridging solution specifically for these patients.
