B) A lateral tunnel Fontan procedure for tricuspid atresia and hypoplasia of the right ventricle. Both Fontan variations can be fenestrated to allow for communication between the venous circulation and the left atrium if pulmonary artery resistance is mildly elevated infants (67%), and has been associated with genetic syndromes including trisomy 13 and 18, Turner syndrome (XO), and Jacobsen’s syndrome, a rare chromosomal defect (11p deletion) [110, 111]. Infants with HLHS may present with pallor and tachypnea in the newborn nursery or be missed and present with complete cardiovascular collapse after closure of the ductus arteriosus, which is the only source of systemic blood flow.

Among the smaller veins is Marshall oblique vein, which lies over the posterior wall of the LA and represents a vestige of the left SCV. A fairly common variation is the left SCV remaining patent and terminating in the lateral aspect of the coronary sinus. In this circumstance, the CS is greatly enlarged. Opacification of the epicardial cardiac veins may be observed in late phases of coronary arteriograms. The coronary arteriograms in Figs. 39 illustrate the main cardiac veins during this late stage.

Heredity and CHD Isolated CHD frequently has complex multifactorial inheritance that complicates the prediction of recurrence risk. While some forms of isolated CHD are associated with single-gene defects (Nkx2-5 and septal defects; Notch1 and aortic valve disease) and have classical, single-gene inheritance patterns, single-gene testing in isolated CHD is rarely performed outside of the research setting. In the absence of an identified genetic cause of isolated CHD, recurrence risk is most often calculated based on population studies of all CHD grouped together and on individual family pedigree [89].
