1/1. Restrictive interatrial communication with protein-losing enteropathy and coagulopathy in hypoplastic left heart syndrome after Norwood palliation.The Norwood procedure is one option for neonates born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We describe a case of an infant with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, palliatively repaired with the Norwood procedure. The infant developed restriction of the interatrial communication, despite atrioseptectomy at the first stage of palliation. Consequently, a protein-losing enteropathy with severe coagulopathy developed which resolved after a repeat atrioseptectomy.
