Waterston's anastomosis resulting in severe congestive heart failure, which is refractory to medical treatment, represents a difficult problem to treat. Surgical revision of the anastomosis has been successfully performed in a 4 month old girl with Tetralogy of Fallot, in whom a life threatening heart failure persisted following shunt operation, in spite of vigorous medical treatment. A simple technique which allowed a predictable reduction of the shunt stoma is described.
