Abstract

A 5-year-old female presented with anasarca secondary to protein-losing enteropathy after fenestrated extracardiac Fontan. There was no response to digoxin, furosemide, spironolactone and captopril. She had coarctation of the aorta and left pulmonary artery stenosis resistant to multiple surgical and balloon interventions. Stent expansion of these lesions resulted in the patient's recovery from protein-losing enteropathy.
