          Abstract

          Complete transposition of the great arteries has been historically managed by the Mustard (atrial switch) operation. This procedure is associated with longterm complications such as baffle occlusion, which also precludes the insertion of a permanent transvenous pacemaker. Transcatheter techniques have allowed the successful angioplasty and stenting of stenotic baffles but complete occlusions continue to pose a therapeutic challenge. We report the use of a novel technique, a radiofrequency perforation wire for the management of complete occlusion of systemic venous baffles post-Mustard operation. (c) 2007 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
