Abstract

We present a patient with a supported Ross procedure and severe pulmonary homograft stenosis who developed cardiac arrest while undergoing transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement and was found to have a large iatrogenic aortopulmonary window. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was initiated followed by covered stent placement, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support, and ultimately emergent surgery with a good outcome. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.).
