The presence of ventriculocoronary connections in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and mitral stenosis-aortic atresia is a suggested risk factor for myocardial ischemia after surgical palliation. We describe a neonate with this anatomic variant of hypoplastic left heart syndrome who underwent a successful beating-heart Norwood operation, with continuous coronary perfusion. The ventricular condition could be visually confirmed during the procedure, and a postoperative echocardiogram showed preserved ventricular function. This technique is considered an effective option for minimizing myocardial damage in this patient subtype.
