It is now recognized that a majority of single ventricle patients, those with functionally univentricular hearts, who have survived palliative cavopulmonary connection will experience circulatory failure and end-organ dysfunction due to intrinsic inadequacies of a circulation supported by a single ventricle. Thus, there are an increasing number of patients with functional single ventricles presenting with failing circulations that may benefit from mechanical circulatory support (MCS).
