Laser lead extraction in adult patients with congenital heart disease is safe and effective. Baffle angioplasty for obstruction in patients with a Mustard procedure is well established. We describe a unique combined interventional and electrophysiological approach on a patient with superior baffle obstruction. This technique utilized the channel created after extracting the chronic pacing lead to cross the obstruction and stent angioplasty of the superior baffle.
