Complete resolution of systemic venous baffle obstruction and baffle leak using the Gore Excluder covered stent in two patients with transposition of the great arteries and prior Mustard procedure.

Journal Article

We present two patients with a history of Mustard repair of transposition of the great arteries. Both patients presented with exertional limitation and demonstrated superior systemic venous baffle obstruction as well as multiple baffle leaks. In both patients stent relief of obstruction and baffle leak exclusion was accomplished using a combination of bare metal stents and the aortic extension portion of the Gore Excluder covered stent (W.L. Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, Arizona).
