A 4-year-old boy presents for pectus excavatum repair. He has a Holmes heart type of double-inlet left ventricle (single ventricle, great vessel concordance, hypoplastic pulmonary outlet chamber), tolerates exercise well, and has an Hct of 45%. He has a Glenn shunt. His pectus excavatum is so severe, however, that the cardiac surgeons would like it repaired prior to sternotomy and cardiac surgery.
