HLHS Treatment

Related Surgeries

The anomalies associated with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome can vary from child to child. For this reason, surgeries are sometimes modified or adapted to suit the individual physiology of the patient. Additional surgeries and alternative approaches to the treatment of HLHS may be utilised in the reconstructive surgeries.More information about these alternatives can be found by visiting links within this section.
