Abstract

Single ventricle anomalies are characterized by the lack of two completely well-developed ventricles. This chapter elaborates:

1. Anatomy

2. Indication for surgery

3. Approach and cardiopulmonary bypass strategy

4. Bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis without cannulation of the superior vena cava (video)

5. Bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis with cannulation of the superior vena cava (video)

6. Extracardiac conduit with fenestration (video)

7. Extracardiac conduit connecting the hepatic veins to the left pulmonary artery in situs inversus (video)

8. Decompression of the thoracic duct by diverting the innominate vein into the right atrium in a high risk Fontan patient (video)
