Patients with unrepaired pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect may develop stenosis of collaterals or shunts to the pulmonary arteries leading to hypoperfusion of lungs and systemic hypoxemia. A 25-year-old female with pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect presented with progressively increasing cyanosis and exercise intolerance. A restrictive right-sided patent ductus arteriosus was identified as the main source of pulmonary blood flow. We report transcatheter implantation… CONTINUE READING
