Abstract

A session dedicated to heterotaxy syndrome was included in the program of the Tenth International Conference of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society in Miami, Florida in December 2014. An invited panel of experts reviewed the anatomic considerations, surgical considerations, noncardiac issues, and long-term outcomes in this challenging group of patients. The presentations, summarized in this article, reflect the current approach to this complex multiorgan syndrome and highlight future areas of clinical interest and research.
