Hypoplastic left heart syndrome is a rare congenital heart defect characterized by underdevelopment of left-sided heart structures, including the aortic arch. The contemporary surgical management of this anomaly includes the Norwood procedure and provision of pulmonary blood flow by either a modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (MBTS) or a right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery (RV-PA) conduit, commonly referred to as the Sano shunt. We report on an unusual complication of the Sano shunt, that of a giant right ventricular pseudoaneurysm occurring at the shunt insertion site.
