Glenn procedure

Glenn procedure is a palliative surgical procedure performed for patients with Tricuspid atresia. It is also part of the surgical treatment path for hypoplastic left heart syndrome.[1][2][3] This procedure has been largely replaced by Bidirectional Glenn procedure (Fontan procedure).

It connects the superior vena cava to the right pulmonary artery.[4]
