Hi, The vast majority of patients with heterotaxy syndrome who have cardiovascular phenotypes significant enough to warrant cardiac surgical palliation undergo staged reconstruction to create Fontan-type circulatory arrangements; all of these patients can be expected to need cardiac transplantation in the second or third decades of life. Whether patients with heterotaxy syndrome who have cardiovascular defects that can be managed without Fontan fare worse than comparable patients without heterotaxy is currently unknown.
