Altered total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) hemodynamics can cause long-term complications, and patient-specific anatomy hinders generalized solutions. This study employed the use of 4D flow MRI, CFD, and physical model experiments with a perfusion pump to analyze the outcome of surgical TCPC procedures.
