We report the case of a young African woman with a history of right ventricular failure. Image studies suggested endomyocardial fibrosis affecting only the right side of the heart. The right ventricle was extremely small and restricted. The surgical approach entailed endocardectomy and a bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt to improve weaning off bypass and postoperative recovery, both of which were successfully achieved.
