Postoperative bradycardia is not uncommon following the Fontan procedure in patients with a functional single ventricle. The surgical connections created with various Fontan modifications may complicate access to the atria for transvenous implantation of a permanent pacemaker. We describe approaches to overcoming problems with atrial access in an adolescent with complex congenital heart disease who required permanent transvenous atrial pacing for tachycardia-bradycardia after Fontan surgery.
