Significant residual defects after surgical closure of aortopulmonary windows have previously required re-operation. In this paper, we describe the use of a custom made Amplatzer closure device to occlude a hemodynamically significant defect in a 5-year-old child. The device was successfully deployed without complication, and resulted in a major reduction in aorto-pulmonary flow.
