A 4-year-old child with patent ductus arteriosus, perimembranous ventricular septal defect and ostium secundum atrial septal defect was successfully treated with the use of a simultaneous transcatheter for all of the anomalies present. The patent ductus arteriosus was closed first by using a coil, then the perimembranous ventricular septal defect was closed by using a 10-mm Amplatzer eccentric device. Finally, a 10-mm Amplatzer atrial septal defect device was implanted to treat the atrial septal defect.
