A 16-year-old male was admitted with complete occlusion of the superior vena cava pathway 14 years after Mustard procedure for transposition of the great arteries. From a left subclavian vein approach, the atretic vein segment was perforated using a straight guidewire, and was followed by sequential balloon dilation. Implantation of a 30 mm Palmaz-stent through a femoral vein approach resulted in a widely patent channel of the vena cava superior into the systemic venous atrium.
