The Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Fontan Registry

What is the Fontan procedure?

The Fontan procedure is an operation performed in children whose heart has only one main pumping chamber or ventricle. The operation creates a one way circulation for blood flow through the heart to the body then directly back to the lungs. The Fontan procedure has allowed children with the most complex forms of heart disease to enjoy a mostly normal life.

What is the ANZ Fontan Registry?

The ANZ Fontan Registry commenced in 2011 and is a database collecting health information on adults and children who have had a Fontan procedure living in Australia and New Zealand.

The Fontan operation has been performed for more than 40 years, but the outcomes and best ongoing treatment is still unknown. The registry will allow doctors and researchers to improve current treatments options and health outcomes for patients. If you or your child have had a Fontan procedure and would like to participate in the Fontan Registry, or would like more information, please visit - www.fontanregistry.com or get in touch with the Fontan Registry coordinator at the Heart Centre, Gaby Abrahamson, via our contact page.
