Research Interests

Design and Preclinical Feasibility Assessment of an Active Fontan Assist Device:

The Fontan procedure is a by-pass operation mainly for children whose hearts have a deficient right side pumping action. However, this results in poor drainage of blood from the lower body that ultimately causes deterioration of organs. The research will investigate the potential introduction of an implantable assist device to enhance the well-being and life expectancy of Fontan patients. The device will enable patients to undertake exercise and daily activities that are not currently possible.
