A 60-year-old woman with increasing dyspnea was found to have a para-prosthetic aorto-right ventricular fistula during post-operative evaluation. Due to her multiple sternotomies, she was considered to be high risk for open surgical repair and referred for percutaneous intervention. A 6/4 mm Amplatzer occluder device (AGA Medical, Golden Valley, MN) was successfully delivered across the fistula with excellent immediate angiographic results.
