Approximately 1,000 children are born each year with a single ventricle heart defect, in which one lower chamber of the heart is either underdeveloped, too small, or missing a valve. Specific areas of focus for the program include outcomes for hypoplastic left heart syndrome after the hybrid procedure; feeding, nutrition and factors affecting neurodevelopmental outcomes for infants with single ventricle heart defects and parent and family support after diagnosis.
