This is the first report of the construction of a modified Blalock-Taussig shunt using a Contegra conduit reinforced with Goretex in a 4-year-old boy. The patient had a complex cardiac history with a primary diagnosis of pulmonary atresia, hypoplastic right ventricle (RV) and RV-coronary artery fistula.
