Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Combined atrial septal defect and pulmonic stenosis, while a common occurrence in children, is relatively uncommon in adults. There is no widely accepted order in which the defects should be corrected. We report a case that highlights the hemodynamics and the technical dilemma of deciding which lesion to correct first.
