412 Fontan patients were evaluated retrospectively for long-term correlations between postoperative haemodynamics and anticoagulant regimens with haemostatic events. Thrombo-embolic events were observed in 2.7% and haemorrhagic events in 4.4% of patients. Risk factors are analysed for both short- and long-term complications.
