Management of biventricular mechanical circulatory support patients can be complex and can require different systems for support of the right and left ventricles. We describe the use of a Glenn shunt to facilitate weaning from a right ventricular assist device in a patient with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy on biventricular mechanical circulatory support.
