Abstract: An aortopulmonary window is a rare congenital cardiac defect. In the majority of symptomatic neonates and infants, primary surgical repair is the treatment of choice. In selected infants, catheter closure of the defect with a device may be feasible. This article reports on the successful closure of an AP window in a 12 month old infant, using a 6mm Amplatzer septal occluder. The procedure and follow-up were uneventful.
