Abstract

We report the case of a 60-year-old man with a history of recurrent transient ischemic attacks, effort syncope, cyanosis, erythrocytosis and a systolic murmur. Echocardiography and catheterization showed severe pulmonary stenosis and a patent foramen ovale with a right-to-left shunt. The patient was submitted to combined percutaneous pulmonary valvuloplasty and patient foramen ovale closure using the Amplatzer device.
