PMID:  11285609     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Creation of atrial communication was performed in a newborn with critical aortic stenosis. After the success of the initial creation, balloon atrial septostomy using Z-5 catheter was performed. When catheter was pulled back, the tip of the balloon was torn off. This experience could be considered as noteworthy when using this catheter in patients with unusually thick atrial septum.
