Sano shunt

Sano shunt
Diagram of the human heart. In the Sano shunt, circulation is diverted from the right ventricle to the pulmonary circulation.

A Sano shunt is a shunt from the right ventricle to the pulmonary circulation.[1][2][3]

In contrast to a Blalock–Taussig shunt, circulation is primarily in systole.

It is sometimes used as the first step in a Norwood procedure.
