We report on a 17-year-old patient with a residual ventricular septal defect and a significant pressure gradient across the pulmonary homograft after Rastelli-type operation. Device closure of the defect was associated with a considerable reduction of right ventricular hypertension and of the pressure gradient across the right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit.
