    Abstract

    We report a modification of the Starnes technique for palliating severe tricuspid regurgitation associated with a dysplastic right ventricle in a neonate, using a fenestrated pericardial patch allowing for unidirectional flow. The patient eventually underwent a successful Glenn shunt construction with a persistent reduction in right ventricle size at 1 year follow-up.
