A nationwide observational study. Children operated with single-ventricle palliation between January 1994 and December 2017 operated in Sweden will be included retrospectively. Patients born with a functionally single ventricle but not undergoing surgery will not be included. Data regarding preoperative clinical characteristics and operative details will be obtained by medical records review and from The Swedish Registry of Congenital Heart Disease (SWEDCON). Using unique personal identity numbers assigned to all residents of Sweden, data from SWEDCON will be linked with dates of death.
