We treated seromas developing in two patients in relation to left-sided modified Blalock-Taussig shunts by reattaching the original graft to the descending aorta. We postulate that seromas may develop because of the large area of contact between the graft and blood. Shortening the length of the Gore-Tex graft may therefore be a feasible treatment.
