Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Appropriate regimens for anticoagulation in the single ventricle population remain controversial and are usually based on individual practitioners' preferences. We present the case of a patient with a history of hypoplastic left heart syndrome and Norwood palliation who presented at 17 years of age with an acute myocardial infarction and a new diagnosis of antiphospholipid syndrome.
