The authors successfully utilize the bidirectional Glenn procedure to palliate late presenting, cyanotic patients with complex congenital heart disease. Additional information regarding preoperative diagnostic testing would be helpful. There is little information regarding patient screening and selection for the procedure. The short term results are satisfactory, however, mid-term and longer follow-up data is lacking. The treatment algorithm suggested by the report might be useful in other settings.
