2018-11-21T19:36:27Z (GMT) by Orlando Petrucci Rachel Simon-Lee
This patient was a 15-year-old male with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, status post extracardiac Fontan. The left pulmonary artery was stented and the tricuspid valve ring was placed years previously. This was the fifth time the authors re-entered the chest. A suitable donor became available, and the patient presented for orthotopic heart transplant.
