Activity Details
Activity Name: Beyond Palliation: Exploring Transplantation Options for Fontan Patients
Description: Live In-Person & Live Virtual Learning
Needs Assessment: The Ahmanson/UCLA Congenital Heart Disease Center Presents its Fontan symposium providing a comprehensive update on the long-term issues faced by adult Fontan survivors. The course focuses on patients with ?failing? Fontan physiology and the available tools and therapies for the treatment of this challenging subset of patients, including updates on medical therapies, catheter-based and surgical techniques for palliation and support. The ultimate therapeutic options of orthotopic heart and multi-organ transplantation are covered in detail as the need grows in this aging Fontan population.
Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

- Define the ?failing? Fontan patient
- Utilize evidence-based medical therapies for treatment and surveillance of the Fontan survivor
- Diagnose Fontan associated liver disease
- Refer appropriate Fontan patients for catheter-based mechanical and electrical interventions
- Identify the role and the limitations of Fontan conversion surgery
- Identify Fontan patients that may benefit from transplantation or mechanical support
- Describe the short- and intermediate-term outcomes of single and multi-organ transplantation in Fontan patients
