Abstract

A 15-year-old girl with previous repair of a complex cyanotic congenital heart defect had persistence of a modified left Blalock-Taussig shunt that could not be ligated at surgery. Six years later, antegrade delivery of a Gianturco-Grifka Vascular Occlusion Device resulted in complete closure of the shunt.
