We present the first described use of the Gianturco-Grifka Vascular Occlusion Device to close a moderate patent ductus arteriosus associated with the rare congenital condition of right aortic arch with isolation of the left subclavian artery. Left vertebral artery "steal" through the moderate patent ductus arteriosus was eliminated by this transcatheter technique. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 47:320-322, 1999.
