Hypoxemia after prior cardiac surgery due to interatrial shunting and its treatment with a novel transcatheter occlusion device.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe two unusual cases of hypoxemia after cardiac surgery due to intracardiac right-to-left shunting through a patent foramen ovale or atrial septal defect. The interatrial defects were successfully occluded by placement of a novel, transcather device, the Angelwings Atrial Septal Defect Occluder Device, with resolution of hypoxemia.
