Abstract: Closure of a Potts' aortopulmonary anastomosis during repair of a congenital heart malformation has been associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially due to technical problems encountered at closure of the shunt. A case is presented of a 40-year-old patient with tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia after palliation during infancy with a Potts' shunt. The anastomosis was successfully occluded using an Amplatzer ventricular septal defect occluder, immediately followed by complete surgical repair of his tetralogy of Fallot.
