Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is a common physiological single ventricle pathology. In the first stage palliative Norwood operation, modified Blalock-Taussig shunt or right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit (Sano shunt) are used. Recently, a “hybrid procedure”, combination of bilateral pulmonary artery banding and ductal stenting, was developed as an alternative to the surgical stage 1 Norwood palliation in HLHS patients. This procedure is particularly reserved for high risk cases, low birth weight, premature or unstable neonates. In this article, we report our first HLHS patient who was discharged following hybrid palliation and subsequently underwent a successful comprehensive stage II repair.
