The genetic background of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is still unknown. Cardiac differentiation from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) can recapitulate the cardiogenesis in vitro, and PSC technology could be useful to dissect the diseases with the complex mechanisms. In the past few years, some researches were reported to seek the pathogenesis of HLHS by using PSCs. This paper reports the achievements.
