The application of radiofrequency (RF) technologies in the treatment of congenital heart defects has provided a safe and effective alternative to conventional therapies in the restoration of vascular patency for a variety of arterial and venous occlusions. This report concerns an 8-year old girl that developed protein-losing enteropathy and elevated central venous pressure after occlusion of a surgically redirected anomalous draining left superior vena cava (SVC). Cardiac catheterization revealed complete obstruction of the anastomosis of the SVC into the coronary sinus. Transcatheter recanalization by RF perforation and subsequent stent implantation led to the restoration of upper venous blood flow and the resolution of her symptoms.
