Transcatheter closure of modified Blalock-Taussig shunt with Gianturco-Grifka Vascular Occlusion Device.


A 15-year-old girl with previous repair of a complex cyanotic congenital heart defect had persistence of a modified left Blalock-Taussig shunt that could not be ligated at surgery. Six years later, antegrade delivery of a Gianturco-Grifka Vascular Occlusion Device resulted in complete closure of the shunt. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 48:365-367, 1999.
