Abstract

We performed hybrid operation on a 3-year-old boy with thrombosis in the pulmonary arterial conduit which had been implanted concomitantly at the time of Fontan operation. We used a cholangioscope as a substitute of intravascular endoscope. It visualized the organized thrombus and the suture line in the conduit. Hybrid operation was successfully performed based on the detailed findings gained by cholangioscopy.
