Abstract

We performed a retrospective cohort study to assess the relation between administration of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and duration of pleural drainage in the early postoperative period in patients who underwent a modified Fontan operation at our institution from 1990 through 1996. This study failed to show that administration of captopril decreased the duration of pleural drainage in patients after a modified Fontan operation.
