Abstract

We present a case of successful ventricular assist device support in a 13-year-old female diagnosed with right single ventricle, asplenia, dextrocardia, who had undergone a Fontan operation at 4 years old in an associated children hospital. She underwent placement of Jarvik 2000 axial flow ventricular assist device to the morphologic right ventricle which worked as systemic ventricle. The postoperative course was not eventful. She was waiting for heart transplantation attending high school 3 years after implantation.
