Abstract

The percutaneous transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects (ASDs) has become an acceptable alternative to surgical repair. The investigators present a case of aorta-to-right atrial fistula after the closure of an ASD using the Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO). After the surgical removal of the ASO, the ASD patch closure, and the repair of the fistula, the patient eventually recovered.
