A 6-year-old girl with heterotaxy and a functional single ventricle had persistent cyanosis 4 years after a fenestrated Fontan procedure. Cardiac catheterization revealed a large venous fistula from a left-sided hepatic vein to the coronary sinus, resulting in desaturation. The anomalous vein was occluded with an Amplatzer vascular plug.
