Occlusion of anomalous systemic arterial supply in Scimitar syndrome using the new Amplatz vascular plug IV

  • Jamie R. Bentham (a1) and Neil Wilson (a1)

Abstract

Scimitar syndrome is a rare condition often with a separate systemic arterial supply from the abdominal aorta. Occlusion of this systemic arterial supply is frequently performed, though it can be difficult in small patients or in those with tortuous vessels. This case documents use of the new Amplatz vascular plug IV for arterial occlusion. It has major advantages in being able to deliver the device through a 4F catheter without the need to upsize to a dedicated delivery sheath. This is particularly appealing to paediatric practice or to those with difficult anatomy in older patients.
