The presence of a residual systemic-to-pulmonary shunt following a bidirectional Glenn operation may be necessary in patients with an elevated pulmonary vascular resistance. It is often possible to perform percutaneous occlusion of these shunts once the resistance has fallen. We report on the use of an Amplatzer Ductal Occluder Device to occlude a residual Sano shunt in an infant with a variant of hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
