Total Cavopulmonary Connection (TCPC) is the most common surgical palliation for single ventricle heart defects. In such connections, venae cavae are connected to the pulmonary arteries, bypassing the right ventricle. The patient-specific anatomical complexity makes characterization and optimization of the fluid mechanics a unique challenge.
