Transseptal puncture is a routine technique to access the left atrium during catheter ablation, but carries a small risk of perforation into the pericardium or aorta. When conservative management fails, surgical repair is usually needed. We report an 81-year-old male in whom aortic root perforation occurred after transseptal puncture and was treated successfully by percutaneous deployment of an Amplatzer Duct Occluder II device.
