Congenital heart disease patients, specifically with unbalanced atrioventricular septal defects and common atrioventricular valves requiring single ventricle palliation, have substantial morbidity and mortality. Atrioventricular valve regurgitation (AVVR) is associated with poor outcomes in single ventricle patients, and many of them require surgical treatment of AVVR in their lifetimes. We describe a unique case of transcatheter edge-to-edge valve repair using the MitraClip system (Abbott, Chicago, IL) in a single ventricle patient with severe common AVVR.
