The use of Amplatzer septal occluder for closing a residual aortopulmonary defect has been described. This is usually performed by femoral access. We report closure of a residual aortopulmonary defect using right internal jugular vein access in a patient who had no femoral access as a result of previous cannulation for surgical repair. The 1 cm defect was closed successfully using a 10 mm Amplatzer septal occluder. Technical difficulty anticipated was unfounded although it was more cumbersome than femoral access. Left to right cardiac defects including PDA and AP window are amenable to transcatheter closure through internal jugular vein access.
