Abstract

We present pressure-volume loops obtained from two patients with single-ventricle physiology, one with a modified Blalock-Taussig shunt and one with a right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery shunt. The dissimilarities in pressure-volume loop contour and related indices highlight potentially important differences in ventricular mechanics between the shunt types.
