Infant Single Ventricle Monitoring Program (ISVMP): Outpatient Pathway - Stage I Discharge to Stage II Operation

Decision guidance/considerations

  1. Standard imaging is a sedated echo either at, or prior to previsit (if at previsit, previsit should occur 1 week prior to surgical date)
  2. Alternative 1 – MRI
    • Consider MRI if concern about pulmonary artery stenosis/distortion, or other arterial or venous anomaly requiring further delineation (e.g. papvc)
  3. Alternative 2 – Catheterization
    • Consider if intervention may be required (e.g. concern for recoarctation, LSVC requiring embolization)
    • Hemodynamic concerns such as elevated PVR, PVV stenosis.
