Abstract: Transcatheter balloon valvuloplasty had been established as the treatment of choice in patients with pulmonary valvar stenosis. Non surgical closure of secundum atrial defects by various occlusive devices is currently being evaluated. We report the first successful simultaneous transvenous Mansfield balloon dilation and Amplatzer septal occlusion in a 7-year-old girl with moderately severe pulmonary valvar stenosis and secundum atrial defect in April 1997. Satisfactory reduction of pressure gradient across pulmonary valve and complete obliteration of left to right atrial shunt were achieved.
