Eisenmenger syndrome that develops as a result of a congenital heart defect that was never repaired is generally not treated by repairing the original defect, as it would increase the workload on the right ventricle and lead to a poor outcome. Lung transplantation or heart-lung transplantation may be performed when other treatments are no longer effective.
