Early Experience Using Implanted Hemodynamic Monitor (CardioMEMs) for Hemodynamic Assessment during Exercise in Pediatric Patients with Fontan Circulation

Metagenomic next-generation sequencing in osteoarticular infections with a focus on pediatrics: current concepts and clinical applications

Deepti P. Bhat, MD

Assessment of Fontan pressures during exercise has been previously challenging. We report our experience with 4 children, in whom implanted hemodynamic monitor was utilized to assess Fontan pressures during exercise. Data was used to modify treatment in one case. The device provided useful insight into exercise-related changes in Fontan patients.
