Early spontaneous closure of a fenestration following Fontan palliation may complicate the postoperative management of such patients. The creation of a fenestration in the catheterization laboratory with an intravascular stent may improve these patients' hemodynamic status. The aim of this study is to present a new technique to reduce the diameter of stented Fontan fenestrations in those patients in whom the stent diameter is functionally made too large.
