Abstract

We report the case of a neonate born with a giant fibroma occupying the entirety of her left ventricle. Owing to the extensive resection, her postoperative course was complicated by severely diminished left ventricular function and complete heart block necessitating extracorporeal support. Ultimately, cardiac resynchronization therapy was used, after which the infant's ventricular function gradually improved and she was successfully discharged to home.
