The patient was a male infant with L-transposition of great arteries (L-TGA), Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve, subvalvar aortic stenosis, ventricular septal defect (VSD), hypoplastic right ventricle, arch hypoplasia, and congenital complete heart block. He underwent a Norwood procedure, aortic arch repair, permanent pacemaker implantation, and a 3.5-mm aortopulmonary shunt at 4 days of age. At the time of his surgery, left ventricular function was in the normal range (ejection fraction [EF] = 67%). However by 3 months of age, he was noted to have developed moderate-severe biventricular dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] = 34%). Atresia of the coronary sinus with a small left superior venacava (LSVC) and a bridging vein was discovered during cardiac catheterization at this time. The coronary sinus mean pressure was 17 mm Hg, and the common atrial mean pressure was 6 mmHg. We opened the atretic coronary sinus ostium using radiofrequency ablation and stent placement. There was dramatic improvement in ventricular function observed over a 2-month period. Follow-up cardiac catheterization 5 months later revealed the stent in the coronary sinus to be widely patent with no intimal buildup, and the ventricular function was normal (LVEF = 58%). The patient had a bidirectional Glenn procedure with an uncomplicated postoperative course and is currently awaiting Fontan completion.
