study investigated the effects of 3D printing technology on flow rates in patient-specific
total cavo-pulmonary connection models. 4D flow MRI was used to quantify flow
through the Fontan, Glenn, left pulmonary artery and right pulmonary artery in
three models at four different flow rates. No statistically significant
differences in flow in any of the regions of interest were observed.
