Left pulmonary artery hypoplasia in the setting of Fontan circulation predisposes to pulmonary artery discontinuity. We describe a novel approach to correct post-Fontan left pulmonary artery discontinuity by a strategy to produce isolated left pulmonary artery growth, followed by a catheter-based reincorporation of the left pulmonary artery into the Fontan circuit.
