In brief: It cannot be cured
Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (hlhs) is a congenital defect that occurs early during fetal development and it cannot be cured; babies are born with it.
It is possible to treat hlhs with surgical and/or catheter-based therapies, but the anatomic defects cannot be reversed. There are newer fetal interventions under investigation that may improve the outcomes, but they also are not curative.
