Several issues may impact on the function of a Fontan circulation including accessory source of pulmonary blood flow and pulmonary artery anatomy. Here we report on a 5.5-year-old boy who showed failing Fontan circulation due to left pulmonary artery stenosis/hypoplasia and significant forward pulmonary blood flow through the native pulmonary artery. Successful implantation of a 34-mm CP covered stent in the left pulmonary artery in a Fontan patient was useful for simultaneous successful treatment of residual antegrade flow from the systemic ventricle to the pulmonary artery and enlargement of hypoplastic left pulmonary artery. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
