Abstract

We present the first case of a successful Fontan completion in a patient with previous liver transplantation. An infant with polysplenia syndrome with a functional single ventricle and biliary atresia had been surgically managed by pulmonary artery banding, Kasai operation and living donor liver transplantation. Subsequently, the patient successfully underwent bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt and total cavopulmonary connection with extracardiac conduit at 3 and 5 years of age, respectively.
