Combined Transcatheter Closure of Atrial Septal Defect and Pulmonary Valve Balloon Dilation


Critical pulmonary valve stenosis (CPVS) and atrial septal defect (ASD) is an uncommon form of congenital heart disease. Concurrent transcatheter pulmonary valvuplasty and closure of secundum atrial septal defect appears to be an interesting alternative to surgical correction. We present the simultaneous balloon valvuloplasty of critical pulmonary stenosis (PS) with supra systemic right ventricular pressure and medium sized secundum ASD with right to left shunt.
