Abstract

A case of profound sistemic oxigen desaturation after atrial septostomy in a patient with primitive pulmonary hypertension is reported. A new method to correct such severe complication of atrial septostomy is described, consisting in a graded reduction of the right to left atrial shunt by deployment of a manually perforated atrial septal closure device.
