A 4-month-old infant with trisomy 21 and repaired complete atrioventricular septal defect developed endocarditis with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in the early postoperative period. We report the successful replacement of the common atrioventricular valve with a single St. Jude mechanical prosthetic valve, along with an intraluminal pulmonary artery banding to restrict pulmonary flow.
