Engineers and physicians propose new approach to single-ventricle heart surgery for infants 11/5/14
Engineers and physicians propose new approach to single-ventricle heart surgery for infants
A schematic of an industrial ejector pump. This device transfers the energy of flow with
higher pressure to the flow with lower pressure, hence elevating the pressure at the outlet. Based on
the same concept, flow through the SVC can be assisted by flow through the shunt to obtain a higher
pressure at the PA without increasing SVC
