“Frontiers in Fontan Failure” was the title of a 2015 conference sponsored by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine. In what is hoped to be the first of many such gatherings, speakers and attendees gathered to discuss the problem of long-term clinical deterioration in these patients. Specific focuses included properly defining the problem and then discussing different treatment strategies, both medical and surgical. The health of the liver after Fontan palliation was a particular point of emphasis, as were quality of life and future directions.
