Liver issues and then Transplant for HPRH??
My daughter has HPRH and is 7yrs old.  Went to cardiologist and was told that her liver was being effected by the fontan circulation.  They said they give her 2-3 years before she needs a transplant.  Why is this happening when other kids live with Fontan circulation with no issues??  Does anyone have experience with transplant after the 3 stage surgeries.  What are the cons of a transplant -real life experience.  I have read statistics that say after 3 yrs a good percentage get cancer, after 5 years the kidneys start to fail, yet alone the percentage of rejection.

Has your daughter had the Fontan procedure? which bypasses the single ventricle of venous blood and puts it directly into the pulmonary system?
