This presentation on day one of STS 2024 will report on a comprehensive approach that focuses on maximizing survival and optimizing the utilization of donor hearts in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and HLHS-related malformations with functionally univentricular ductal-dependent systemic circulation. 

"Dr. Mark Bleiweis"
Dr. Mark Bleiweis will report on study findings of a comprehensive approach to treating neonates with HLHS and HLHS-related 

“A Comprehensive Approach to the Management of Patients with HLHS and HLHS-Related Malformation” will begin at 9:45 a.m. CT in room Stars at Night 1.  The presentation is part of the STS “Cardiac Center in Evolution: Management of Single Ventricle” session.
  
Dr. Mark Bleiweis, from the University of Florida, will report on findings describing outcomes that resulted from using this approach in 100 consecutive neonates. During the talk, Dr. Bleiweis will detail how these neonates with HLHS and HLHS-related malformations, during an eight-year period, were stratified into three different pathways based on their risk factors, and mortality rates that resulted for these neonates.

“This study is based on the principle that some patients with HLHS or HLHS-related malformations are at very high-risk for Norwood (Stage 1) palliation or hybrid palliation secondary to important cardiac risk factors,” said Dr. Bleiweis.
