Fontan procedure is a surgical treatment used for patients with various forms of congenital heart disease who cannot support biventricular circulation. It is very important in pregnant patients that the right atrium and the single ventricle can tolerate the cardiovascular adjustment. The following case report describes a parturient who underwent Fontan procedure for tricuspid atresia and pulmonic stenosis and delivered, by caesarean section at 36.5 weeks of gestation, a female infant who weighed 2400 g, without any cardiovascular complications.
