Abstract

We performed brain magnetic resonance imaging in 40 patients after the Fontan procedure and 40 control subjects. Pituitary volumes in patients after Fontan were significantly larger than those in the control subjects (472 [425-527] vs 257 [182-311]; P <.0001), and were significantly related to central venous pressure.
