Progressive dyspnea and cyanosis occurred in a 41-year-old patient status after Mustard atrial switch repair for transposition of great arteries. Cardiac catheterization and magnetic resonance imaging revealed the association of superior limb systemic venous baffle obstruction and leaks with right-to-left shunting. He underwent successful dilation of the venous channel and obstruction of baffle leaks by using a covered stent.
