Bidirectional Glenn shunt is usually performed in patients with single ventricle in preparation for a total cavo-pulmonary connection. We present a patient born with complex congenital heart disease consisting of single ventricle, pulmonary atresia, non confluent pulmonary arteries and anomalous pulmonary venous return in whom surgical bidirectional Glenn was attempted. After multiple surgical attempts she was converted to a Classic Glenn and a central ascending aorta to left pulmonary artery shunt. Several years later by the aid of radiofrequency wire the occluded pulmonary artery segment was canalized establishing continuity between the 2 pulmonary artery branches with stenting of the intervening segment. The central shunt to the left pulmonary artery was subsequently embolized. Thus this patient was converted in the catheterization laboratory from the physiology of a classic Glenn to the more preferred bidirectional Glenn physiology. © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
