Abstract

Aortopulmonary window (APW), the presence of a communication between aorta and pulmonary artery, is a rare congenital heart disease, and surgical intervention is the standard for closure. Recently, several cases have been treated with transcatheter device occluders. Here, we report an APW patient treated successfully using a transcatheter closure with a symmetrical membranous ventricular septal occluder. We are the first to report on a case treated with this type of occluder for APW.
