Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a very unique ‘single ventricle pathology’ among congenital cardiac anomalies. This syndrome is characterized by hypoplasia or absence of the left ventricle, mitral and aortic valve, and severe hypoplasia of the ascending aorta. While an aortopulmonary shunt is used for pulmonary circulation in classical Norwood procedure which is a first stage palliation, right ventricle to pulmonary artery shunt is used in Sano modification. This case report presents a successful Norwood stage 1 palliation with Sano modification in a patient with HLHS diagnosed in fetal period.
