We present the case of an 11-year-old with D-transposition, double inlet left ventricle, and dextrocardia 8 years following an extracardiac Fontan with supraventricular tachycardia mediated by a concealed accessory pathway. A transbaffle puncture was performed with fluoroscopic and transesophageal echocardiography guidance and the pathway location as well as its proximity to the HIS bundle were identified. The pathway was successfully ablated and the patient is asymptomatic for 12 months postablation.
