Abstract

A right pulmonary artery-to-left atrial fistula is a very rare cyanotic congenital heart defect and is characterized by cyanosis and normal auscultation of the heart. Interventional closure of the fistula using occluder devices and coils has been rarely reported. We report the successful closure of a RPA-to-left atrial fistula using an Amplatzer muscular ventricular septal defect occluder in a child with cyanosis. The two-dimensional echocardiogram with bubble contrast study demonstrated the communication between right pulmonary artery and left atrium. Computerized tomography confirmed the diagnosis and delineated the anatomy.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
