Özet

Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare abnormality in which a pulmonary defect exists between the ascending aorta and the main pulmonary artery. Given that it may result in cardiac failure and pulmonary vascular disease in the early period, treatment needs to be performed without delay. In addition to surgical treatment, transcatheter closure may also be performed for selected patients. This study describes the case of an infant diagnosed with APW and who underwent successful transcatheter closure using a Nit-Occlud((R))PDA-R device.
