The ventriculo-pulmonary shunt in hypoplastic left heart syndrome has become an alternative to the arterio-pulmonary shunt. We present a patient with a severe stenosis in the ventriculo-pulmonary shunt at the proximal anastomosis, for which emergency balloon dilatation and stent implantation was performed. The location of the stent in the shunt, leaving only a thin compressed infundibular myocardium directly beneath the sternum, predisposed to massive haemorrhage at resternotomy for bidirectional Glenn procedure.
