PMID:  12929108     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a case in which a discrete atretic segment of the right pulmonary artery (due to a Blalock-Taussig shunt) was reconstructed using a new radiofrequency system, balloon dilation, and stent implantation in an 18-month-old patient. The shunt was coil-occluded. The technique and applications of this novel approach are discussed.
